Watch The Sun Set On An Almost Abandoned Ghost Town From This Easy-Access Overlook Hiding In West Virginia

There are so many beautiful overlooks in West Virginia, including many of the famed New River Gorge. But it’s always a thrill to stumble across a new one that gives you a unique glimpse of the Mountain State. That’s the case for many when they discover the Concho Rim Overlook. Not only is the Concho Overlook easy to get to – you can drive right to it or take a short, half-mile stroll – but it also provides a unique view of an impressive bend in the New River right at the fascinating old mining town of Thurmond, West Virginia.
