Hawks Nest State Park - Almost Heaven, West Virginia

Hawks Nest State Park encompasses 276 acres bordering a rugged section of the New River Gorge National River. Long known for its panoramic views, the park offers an on-site restaurant and an aerial tramway. Below the lodge, the New River forms peaceful Hawks Nest Lake. Above the lake, the narrow canyon and rushing water create one of the most challenging whitewater boating waterways in the nation.  We will take the aerial tram to the 21-foot jet boat for a spectacular view of the New River Gorge Bridge.


ALL ABOARD- The Tygart Flyer Rail

This wilderness excursion features mountain grades, an “S” curve tunnel, a high bridge and miles of unspoiled mountain views. Vintage diesel-powered locomotives climb along the cascading Shavers Fork of the Cheat River to the High Falls of Cheat. This vintage diesel-powered passenger train has gained a reputation as one of the most relaxing mountain wilderness excursions.  On the trip to the Falls, enjoy an “All You Can Eat” Cold Sandwich Buffet.  The trip culminates at the High Falls of Cheat, an 182 high, 1502 wide waterfall located in one of the most remote and pristine settings in the region. If you’re looking for comfort and spectacular views on a vintage train this is the ride for you!
