SURROUNDING AREA

Old Grandview Road is located in south-central West Virginia, a region highly regarded for its blend of forest and farmland and high interstate access. Two interstate expressways—I-64 and I-77—converge nearby at Beckley, accomodating easy access to metropolitan areas of the eastern U.S. However, the area is best known for its proximity to national parks and outdoor recreation.

The Old Grandview Road

The old road leading across a tableland region west of the county seat at Beckley, what’s now Old Grandview Road was first a wagon road established as early at the 1830s. It was long the principal route between early settlements at Grandview and Table Rock established by the Carper and Scott families, respectively. The old road was by-passed by the newer Grandview Road in the 1940s and since has become a secondary route used principally to access adjoining homes, farms, and woodlots.

Grandview

Grandview is the name of a rural community established on the tablelands along the rim of the New River Gorge in the 1850s, though it’s best known as the state park developed there in the 1950s, now part of the national park. Both the park and community are named for the spectacular views of the narrowing valley of the New River afforded from cliff-top overlooks. The main overlook at Grandview and the nearby Turkey Spur overlook are among the most visited locations in the park. The outdoor dramas “Honey in the Rock” and “Hatfields & McCoys” have been attracting visitors to the park’s Cliffside Amphitheatre, located near the Main Overlook, since 1974. More than 64,000 cars entered the park at Grandview in 2020, according to the National Park Service.

Little Beaver State Park

One of the most community-driven parks in the state system, Little Beaver is a favorite local destination for fishing, hiking, biking, and camping. A drive of fewer than five miles from Old Grandview Road, the park accomodates easy access to outdoor recreation when national park facilities may be crowded. The park includes 18-acre Little Beaver Lake, ideal for kayaking, and a 46-site campground open year-round.

Winterplace and Glade Springs

The ski resort Winterplace is a drive of approximately 20 minutes south of Old Grandview Road. It boasts nine lifts, 27 trails, night skiing, and a snowtubing park. Adjoining I-77,  it’s easily accessible to millions of skiers and markets itself as “Where the the South learns to ski!” Also nearby, the Resort at Glade Springs offers three world-class golf courses and country-club amenities in a residential gated community.

Glade Creek Trails

Maintained by the National Park Service, the Glade Creek Trails system includes more than 15 miles of woodland trails that visit wetlands, waterfalls, and some of the most remote forests in the national park. Its southern trailhead is a drive of fewer than five miles from Old Grandview Road. Glade Creek is also a beloved trout stream, and its swimming holes are popular in summer.

Piney Creek Trails

A favorite easy-access destination for hikers and bikers, more than 20 miles of trail in the Piney Creek Trail System wander the wooded tablelands along either rim of the Piney Creek Gorge east of Beckley. A drive of fewer than five to 10 minutes from Old Grandview Road, the trails are renowned for their convenience to work commute routes in Beckley and at the Raleigh County Airport Industrial Park and the Pinecrest Business and Technology Park.
