Traveling North to my daughter's I crossed this bridge and had to stop at the visitors info center to learn more of this amazing structure. Inside there is an 11 minute movie that talks about the Gorge things to do there and about the construction of the bridge. This bridge is the largest arched bridge in the world and is... More

The title says it all. I go there to jump of the bridge once a year at Bridge Day. It's really beautiful there and a great place to go hiking with the family. A lot of trails and things to see. You can rent canoes and go down the river or do more advanced water rafting. Whatever your choice is,... More

Very nice visitors centre with the history of the gorge. It's a remarkable bridge and the view is breathtaking. Worth stopping for half an hour.

An awesome structure, from above, on and below! Do not miss the visitor's center at the north end of the bridge. Visit the overlooks (2), easily accessible from the visitor center parking lot. If time permits drive the narrow road into the gorge from the north side, cross the New River on a bridge that is the replica of the... More

The views from the visitor center overlook were well worth the stop. The visitor center itself was also worthwhile. It presented a nice history of the area as well as information on local flora and fauna. Parking is easy and the center was clean and well-maintained.

I was able to stop to really look at the bridge. The project alone to build such a bridge and the height. What took travelers 45 minutes to cross now only takes around 45 seconds is what I read.

It was a overcast, cool day. Not suitable for rafting or taking the catwalk tour under the bridge. The park ranger at the Canyon Rim Visitor's Center just off Rt 19 suggested we take the auto drive tour down County 82 to Fayette Station on the New River flowing under the bridge. He gave us a CD to play in... More

We drove across the bridge both ways. It's an amazing trip across this amazing bridge. I was somewhat disappointed that there was no place to stop and take pictures of such a phenominal place. It's well worth the drive.
