Map | Directions
The West Virginia Sierra Club is celebrating the newest addition to the National Park System with a picnic for members, supporters, friends and guests on June 10, 2023, at the Grandview #4 Shelter in the New River Gorge National Park.
The Club will provide perishable foods, saving you the need to transport food safely. Please bring a nonperishable item to share—buns, condiments, chips, dessert, alcohol-free drinks, a watermelon to slice at the park, or similar items.
At 10:00 AM, Outings leader Chris Craig will lead a hike starting at the pavilion. (See hike details by clicking hike item for June 10 at www.sierraclub.org/west-virginia/events.)
Meanwhile, the charcoal grill will be fired up in anticipation of good things to come.
We’ll start gathering at the shelter around 11:00 and the meal will be served at 12:00. When we’re comfortably full, we’ll enjoy some entertainment. Watch for details to be announced after speakers and musicians are finalized. The afternoon will bring a variety of activities and games, and the Shelter 3&4 Playground beckons young picnickers with energy to burn.
Most of us will have a long drive home, so we’ll begin to wrap things up around 4:00 and vacate the shelter at 5:00.
Consider spending the night in the area so you’ll have more time to explore this scenic addition to the National Park System.
