April 2014 fire in New River Gorge

A repair project has temporarily shut off access to the main overlook at Grandview.

The National Park Service says in a news release that the overlook’s main walkway is being closed for repairs, effective immediately. The closure is expected to last for approximately the next three weeks.

Grandview’s other overlooks and all trails will remain open.

The main overlook is 1,400 feet above the New River and provides views of river’s Horseshoe Bend and the town of Quinnimont.

Grandview is part of the New River Gorge National River.
