Hawks Nest! The Story of an Iconic State Park

In 1935, stonework was laid and Hawks Nest began its journey as one of West Virginia’s most notable vacation and sightseeing destinations.

With history from early passages and stagecoach stops, from the years prior to the Civilian Conservation Corps development of what is referenced as the “Lower Park,” to the development of the lodge and tram complex, Hawks Nest State Park has a story to tell.

Join outdoor interpreter Jon Friend and colleagues and learn more about Hawks Nest State Park “Through the Years.” Two presentations are planned: 12:00 p.m.and again at 4:00 p.m. The program is about one hour in length. Look for the nature canopy in the front of Hawks Nest Lodge. Open to the public.

This program is one of many activities during the 2018 Hidden History Weekend, part of the heritage celebrations assembled by the National Park Service.
