  • Years ago a tornado took out the rail bridge. Now it has been retrofitted with a walkway out to the end of what is left. Ending in a glass floor. It is neat for anyone especially if you know someone afraid of heights. Down in the gorge there is a trail that takes you around the wreckage of what fell. Downfall: the gorge does have snakes, if that bothers you. But, I took my 5 yr old down there to walk around if that shows you how [not] worried I was about it. Also You are technically not supposed to climb on the wreckage. But dog gone it, It looked fun so I did it anyway. Great place to get some scenic family photos while you are there.
  • Perfect place for a trip with the whole family! The collapsed structure of the bridge is extremely interesting and perfectly preserved. The still standing part has a viewing platform at the top and can be walked upon. There is also a short trail that leads into the valley bellow, straight to the pillars. The surrounding nature is just breathtaking. There is a visitors center with a large exhibition showing the history of the bridge, interesting engineering facts and more - it is very interactive, modern and focused on the children as well. I would have loved to spend more time here - I can easily imagine staying for at least half a day.
  • Such a cool experience to get to have. This place was very important in history for an transporting goods send saving time. Not too mention the bridges all around history. So awesome.
  • Beautiful tourist location is a must see. The visitors Center is new, has a small gift shop, restrooms, help desk, creative and hands on information regarding the construction of the bridge. Be adventurous and make the hike to the bottom, across the bridge and up the other side. The pictures you can capture and breathtaking!!
  • Very cool. Been there twice. Kids love it definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.
