This is the signature hike of the Grandview area. The rewards start almost immediately after leaving the trailhead. It is but a short distance to the rim of the New River Gorge. Just a few more strides lead to the North Overlook, where an unimpeded vista awaits of the incredible chasm cut by the New River as it bullies through West Virginia highlands. From there the Grandview Rim Trail skirts the edge of the gorge, passing more overlooks along the canyon precipice, and through imperiled hemlock forests. The Turkey Spur Overlook awaits at trail’s end. Feel the natural air conditioner, a geological feature, and then climb steps to Turkey Spur Rock, with multiple vistas from its crest. Hikers are guaranteed to enjoy the return trip on this trail treasure.
