Grandview - New River Gorge

Grandview became part of New River Gorge National River in 1990, after more than 50 years as one of West Virginia's most popular day use state parks. It is well known for its spectacular views of the New River and beautiful rhododendron.

Grandview is a peaceful place to relax and unwind while enjoying outstanding views of the New River. At the Main Overlook, 1400 feet above the river, you see an active railway and the town of Quinnimont, where the first coal was shipped out of the gorge in 1873.
