Create an itinerary including New River Gorge Bridge
The third-highest bridge in the United States and the fourth-longest single-arch span in the world, New River Gorge Bridge offers views of the New River below and the gorge it has carved in the Appalachian Mountains. Before crossing the 924 m (3,030 ft) long, 267 m (876 ft) high bridge, stop by the visitor’s center for a scenic overlook from the deck. Take the path to the wooden staircase to reach the viewing platform. Beneath the bridge, guided tours with a safety harness are available on a 0.4 km (0.25 mi), handicap-accessible steel catwalk. Be on the lookout for the brown sign on your way to the bridge--it can be easy to miss.

  • I do not recommend walking those stairs to get the view of bridge from platform at the bottom of the gorge. Too tiring.

  • We viewed the bridge from all angles, drove across it, hiked under it, rafted under it and did the bridge walk. The structure is amazing. I don't normally like things that detract from natural beauty....  more

  • Very impressive feat of engineering for its day. Outstanding scenery. The visitor center's overlook alone is sufficient if you are in a rush. Fayette Station Road is a nice drive if one has the time.....  more
