Hawks Nest Overlook

Viewpoint in New River Gorge National River

An 80yd paved trail leads to a lofty view of the New River. The photogenic rock wall surrounding the overlook was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. It's worth the short walk from the parking lot to get there. The viewpoint is a quarter-mile south of the main lodge at Hawks Nest State Park.
