An Uphill Trek and Stair Climb to Turkey Spur Overlook


The Grandview area within New River Gorge National Park and Preserve is great for those who want to either relax with a view of the New River or hike. The Grandview Rim Trail connects three overlooks each with a view different from the others. On a clear day, the view from the Main Overlook, the most popular, frames the horseshoe bend in the river. As it does require a hike, the North Overlook typically has far fewer people. The Turkey Spur Overlook (pictured) requires the combination of an uphill hike plus climbing a wooden staircase - but the view is well worth the effort!

Social Media Description

Have you traveled when the weather was less than desirable?

On our first hike to the overlooks in the Grandview area at New River Gorge National Park and Preserve, the clouds prevented us from seeing the "grand view". Unexpectedly, we stayed for an extra week (more on that tomorrow) so we are taking advantage of our extra days to explore the area. I hiked up to the Turkey Spur Overlook that we didn't make it to earlier. It was a great workout (uphill on a trail plus lots of stairs) with a rewarding view at the top.

What do you usually do when you miss out on something due to the weather?
