Hawks Nest State Park Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 19 photos

Another great state park!

We ventured off a bit when in WV, and came across this cute state park.

For more info:

1800- CALL WVA
or www.wvstateparks.com

Great view of New River Gorge

There are many interesting things going on at this state park.

The park features:
Hiking trails,golf course, musuem, swimming, river marina, boat excursions, hotel and resturant.

Aerial Tramway

There is a small fee (about $2) to take the cable car to the different area of the park.

You will need to take the cable car to get to the jet boat excursion.

Taking the tramway is fun.. yet scary because you are wondering how safe it is the whole ride.
