Grandview State Park Things to Do
About your visit
Grandview is a peaceful place to relax and unwind while enjoying views of the New River. Park rangers will answer your questions and orient you to the park. 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. Don't miss the views from Turkey Spur Overlook, and be sure to walk the woodland trails.
