OAK HILL, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Located atop Concho Rim in Fayette County sits one of the best viewing points of the New River Gorge. A once booming mining town, Concho now serves as a must-visit overlook in the New River Gorge.
The Concho Overlook, which is located just a few minutes from Ace Adventure Resort’s main entrance is easily accessible for all those who wish to take in the view as one can drive directly to the overlook.
There is also a hiking trail from the main parking lot that leads up to the overlook.
Ace Adventure Resort owns and maintains the spacious viewing deck at Concho and even allows individuals or organizations to rent out the overlook for a private event such as a wedding or party.
The overlook also provides one of the most unique views of the old booming railroad town of Thurmond and the structures that remain.
Trains still run through the New River Gorge and if you’re lucky enough to catch one rolling through while at the overlook, the sound of the train horn echoing off the mountains will surely give you chills.
Whether it be spring, summer, fall, or winter, the overlook is a sight to be seen year-round.
The overlook can be accessed from Ace Adventure Resort which is located at 1 Concho Road, Oak Hill, WV 25901.
