The lunch was a simple buffet with sandwiches. The seating was at tables and was a nice way to chat with other visitors. While I thought it would go to a higher elevation, it did "turn around" at a scenic waterfall.

From Elkins Depot it says no in their rules, however I don’t remember them being very strict. I think I took a water bottle. I went on one that served lunch and that began very shortly after our trip began!
