Rail Fanning in the northern New River Gorge

by Fuchs on 05/16/12


One of the most enjoyable aspects of writing “my C&O” was visiting the New River Gorge. From our 4-bedroom cabin at Babcock State Park, we ventured to watch trains at Prince, Thurmond, Anstead, and Hawks Nest. Prince has a station and tracks just steps from the parking lot. Our family favorite is the scenic overlook at Hawks Nest - beautiful views (and restrooms just across the road!)  No visit to Hawks Nest would be complete without a stop at Tudor Biscuit in Anstead. Another family outing was the winding road that took us to the “scary bridge” into Thurmond. The Park Service operates a museum inside the old station. In Thurmond, you can also walk over to watch white water rafters float along the New River.
