Neat to see, but not as spectacular as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong, it was nice. It was cool to see and read about the history. It was cool to see just how high up it is. If you are in the area or on a trip nearby, it is worth the stop.

A man made majestic piece of art. October you can watch people jump off from it and even have guided tours to walk the cat walk underneath.

A must see for a spectacular view. Just do it and you will not be disappointed. Make sure you visit the visitor center and take the path to the catwalk under the bridge.

The New River Gorge is a practical demonstration of how resilient West Virginia is. Once the gorge was home to many coal mines that choked the river and the miners. Now it is a beautiful park to raft in, to hike, to bike ride and to explore a core history of America. The engineering of the bridge is a modern... More

We stop off for a while at the New River Gorge Bridge anytime we pass through the area. The views are outstanding. The visitor center is good, and the walk down to the overlooks are worthwhile. The area is beautiful any season of the year.

The New River Gorge Bridge is a great place to stop and see the displays in the visitor's center and take a walk to see the bridge. You can take the steps down to the bottom for a better view.

Very tall bridge over the New River. Go Whitewater rafting and you'll finish your trek right underneath the bridge.

Amazing views. Easy to get to very historic are, didn't get to see as much as would've liked. Very friendly easy to get to other places close by. Not any major shopping but some convenient eating places and there is a Walmart nearby.
