Just gorgeous! Only spent a short time here, but what I saw was breathtaking! Seemed to have nice trails, was very clean and ample parking.

Grandview is such a beautiful park. Amazing scenic views, fun trails, outdoor activities, and nice picnic shelters. At least go for the main overlook and you won't be disappointed with such a view. Some of the trails could use some fixing up as there are debris blocking parts, broken benches, etc. But overall, a beautiful park with lots to offer!

It's been on our bucket list for a while and this year we made the stop en route to Florida. Just the two of us but we know our teenagers would have loved it too. Very dramatic scenery only a short walk from the car. Enjoyed seeing an outdoor play within the park the same night. THE GOOD: World class... More

This park lives up to it's namesake, it is a GRAND view of the river and mountains. Once in the parking lot, a direct, short paved path leads you out to the main outlook. We were there on a foggy morning so the view was somewhat limited but great none the less. You are facing a mountain where the river... More

Grandview is only a few miles outside of Beckley, WV. The entrance to the park is free. There are several scenic overlooks that give a view of the mountains and the New River Gorge. Plenty of places to stop and have a picnic. Many walking trails throughout the park and a great opportunity to photos and just breathe in the... More

Beautiful park with overlooks of the New River and railroad system. Neat walking trails and picnic facilities, playgrounds and outdoor theatre. We wanted to take in a show at the theatre, but ran out of time. Have heard many great things about them.

We enjoyed a... More

Drove up to the park from Beckley, and were glad we did. Went in the early morning and took one of the rim trails for a couple of miles. Incredible views of the mist filled gorge all along the way. Also a number of deer along the trail. As the day progressed, the mist lifted and the full glory of... More
