Beauty Mountain Photo Vistas (Ram's Head) - Hiking
Take in the view at Ram's Head, Beauty Mountain, New River Gorge.
The hike to the panoramic views is actually less than a few hundred feet, but if you stay up and explore for a bit you can extend the distance.
Destination Distance From Downtown
Short and sweet.
Time To Complete
One hour, if you take your time exploring.
While the views are terrific year-round, summer and fall are the best. Beware of winter, when the rocks can be covered in snow and ice. It's a long way down and there is no railing.
On Leash Only
It's outside the National Park, so dogs don't technically have to be on leash, but because of the steep drops, it’s recommended.
