Photograph Grandview Overlook in the New River Gorge

Rate this Adventure West Virginia Grandview Overlook

Added by Elyse Clark

The overlooks at Grandview in the New River Gorge offer a beautiful view of a large horseshoe bend in the New River. 

From the main parking lot at Grandview's visitor center, follow the well marked paved trail about 0.1 miles to the Main Overlook. There is a large platform for viewing the New River here. A wide angle lens is best to photograph this large bend in the river. 

There is another overlook in the park, the North Overlook, which also offers a panoramic view of the horseshoe bend in the New River. The North Overlook is easily accessible from a parking area as shown in the following map:

If you want to enjoy more of the park there is a large picnic area, and an ampitheatre (Theatre West Virginia) which offers many programs throughout the summer.
