I have driven over this bridge a few times but never stopped at the visitor center. Totally worth it! Nice brush up on history and geology of the location/river, nice facilities, nice chairs, and amazing views! Thumbs up! Don’t miss it!

On our way from Charleston WV to Erie PA, we stopped at the New River Gorge Bridge to take in the majestic view. When there, visit the adjacent museum which provides excellent descriptions of the areas colorful history and the region's geological development.

What a great place. We spent time as a family here and the grandkids loved it. Zip lining, rock climbing, boat ride, swimming, and more. It’s a great place to rent a cabin and kick back and relax and enjoy. Absolutely beautiful.

Last visit I was told this is the one of the oldest rivers in the world (the Nile is also one of the oldest). It is really something to see and you will find views all around. Fantastic place to unwind in the wilderness.

New River Gorge is a vast area and unless you're prepared to spend some time discovering the river valley finding great views can be a bit of a challenge. If you have limited time a view well worth the short detour is to take Grandview...More
