“Fantastic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We stopped here at the overlook since we had reservations at Panorama at the Peak restaurant. The view was outstanding! Later we went in to the restaurant for Sunday brunch and had a window seat. We enjoyed people-watching of the people who stopped to take pictures at the overlook.

“Spectacular Sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is directly across the street from Panorama at the Peak. Its on the way to Paw Paw Tunnel. This is the BEST place to see the sunset.

“Average at best..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

I drive to a lot of places in eastern/central wv. There are a TON of places that have much better views than this. If you are looking for trult breathtaking views in wv here are a few ideas. Some require a significant drive time but here you go: 1 Spruce Knob (peak) 2. Bear rocks @ Dolly Sods 3. Cacapon State Park overlook 4. Pendleton point/Blackwater Falls/Blackwater Gorge 5. Along highway 55 heading towards moorefield, and then highway 48 past Moorefield. All of these are significantly better than this overlook. But if you are in Berkeley Springs its worth the drive b/c therr isnt a lot to do there...

“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Worth the 5 minutes drive if you are in Berkeley Springs. If you drive for 5 minutes more you can find a small river access if you have a canoe or kayak.

“Nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

At this overlook just west of Berkeley Springs on Rt. 9, you can see three states. However, the scrub trees haven't been cut back recently blocking some of the view. There is a more spectacular view of 4 states from Cacapon State Park Mountain Overlook. However, the road to Prospect Peak is in better shape than the one at the state park.
