Always stop when we are passing through. Nice walk (overlook does have steps). Restrooms and gift shop located on opposite side of rt. 60 be careful crossing. Gift shop does have snacks, travel info and WV souvenirs.

The hikes were great, especially the old railroad grade. The grad kids had a great time. The views along the cliff hike were incredible but don't take little kids that aren't well behaved.

Quick note: we did not stay, we just played.

Made this our last stop for our self-made "southern wv loop" VIPP tour and it was a BLAST! We stopped at the lodge and checked out the area. Beautiful layout. Took the aerial tram to the bottom of the hillside (which reminded me of the Lowly Worm from the "Busy World of Richard Scarry"). The highlight of our trip - rode the jetboat, "Ms. M. Rocks", with Captain Rick and LOVED every single minute of it! Because we went the first Saturday in May, it was still the off season - but! the weather was perfect and the captain, me, my significant other, and a young local man had the boats to ourselves. The trip lasted 35 minutes and we saw the New River Gorge Bridge from the river - up.
