“Beautiful View”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Hawk's Nest always offers a spectacular view, but going in autumn when the leaves have changed colors...that is a visual experience you don't want to miss.

“Watch Your Step.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This place is in need of a major repair program. To get the walking trails and steps in safe comfort condition. Also, need alot of exterior cleaning. But, a beautiful overlook site.

“Beautiful, peaceful”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

We had a great time visiting Hawks nest. We rode the tram down to the base of the gorge and also rode the jetboat. Also the hawks nest rail trail is a fun, easy trail to walk. Its a nice place to visit.

A park above the New River with great views. The restaurant is pleasant and a nice stop for an afternoon lunch. Tram is fun to ride down to the river,
