The Bridge Walk was fun for the entire family. Our guide, Tabitha, was great. On Father’s Day dad’s we’re free and the other tickets were $49. Great deal!!!!!

It was mid afternoon when we took the walk across the bridge. It is a dizzying height from which to see the river and the rapids, the mountains and rocks, the woods and bird, the trains and rafters. But there was no danger of falling....More

I've never done something like this before and it was worth it! The guide was great, the view was spectacular, and I never felt unsafe. It will take you a couple of hours but it goes quickly. In colder months, dress appropriately and wear gloves....More
