Chestnut Mountain extends westward from Keeney Mountain in Summers County to the New River Gorge. W.Va. Route 20 skirts the westward flank of the mountain south of Sandstone, WV, and north of Brooks, WV. Two well known observation areas of the New River are situated along the highway on the mountain: the Brooks Overlook and the Sandstone Falls Overlook.
