I stopped while traveling through and am glad I did. Great visitor center and also has a walkway you can go down to get a better view. Only took a few minutes to see everything and was a great way to stretch my legs!

Excellent view of the New River Gorge and educational opportunity to learn of the history of the area! The lady ranger was very informational recommending waterfalls to visit that were in the area. I would highly recommend stopping by and taking in the picturesque views.
