Vibrant autumn leaves encircle this distinctive two-tiered round tower at the main overlook at Hawks Nest State Park. Topped with a whimsical witch's hat roof, this structure never ceases to enchant me with its medieval castle-like feel.
Constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps of local sandstone, it is a tribute to their skill and craftsmanship. The tower exudes historical charm with its classic design. It might surprise some to learn that this noble building serves an unexpected purpose - it's a bathroom.
Located near Ansted, in Fayette County, West Virginia, Hawks Nest State Park is at the northernmost point of the New River Gorge.
