Grandview Visitor Center

Grandview Visitor Center is located in the Grandview section of the park at the highest elevation in the park and perched along the edge of the gorge where visitors will find a stunning view looking nearly 1,400 feet down from the rim to the river. While Grandview is open year round, the Grandview Visitor Center is open seasonally, normally Memorial Day through Labor Day, from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. It may be open intermittently later into the fall depending on staffing.

The Grandview section of the park includes outstanding overlooks of the New River, hiking trails, ranger-led walks and talks, summer outdoor dramas, and picnic areas with playgrounds. For more information about Grandview, visit the Grandview page.
