This week I went to Grandview National Park to check out what is left of the Autumn colors. Grandview is one of my favorite places to go in southern West Virginia and Turkey Spur Overlook is the main reason.
Dave Bieri, Supervisory Park Ranger at the National Park Service, said “Up at Grandview out at the main overlook you are looking down at the river which is about 1,400 feet below you so there are some spectacular views anytime of year but certainly even more spectacular when you have some fall colors mixed in there.”
Some other great views are of the wildlife you can come in contact with while at Grandview. I was able to see some wild turkeys and white tail deer during my visit.
If you are looking for some activities during the winter months then the National Park Service is teaming up with Active Southern West Virginia to sponsor hikes and even some cross country skiing events.
You can log onto the National Park Service website at www.nps.gov/neri to find out the scheduled hiking and skiing events being they are weather dependent.
And the best part of visiting Grandview National Park is, you can get there in less than one tank of gas.
