  • Fantastic new visitor center & walking paths for a really cool location. The scenery is gorgeous. You can walk out on the reconstructed bridge and right next to the tornado-stricken old one. Very well done.
  • A great thing to visit if you're in the area. The visitors center is great and I loved seeing all the details within. Walked the trail beneath the bridge. Truly amazing! A must see!
  • Awesome Bridge and the time we reached made it a more memorable. We reached there by 8:30 PM and the bridge was good to go but we were just worried about anything getting wrong because nearby to that valley we were the only persons anyone can imagine in a radius of 50 miles it was getting dark but the sounds of the valley, wind, water and specially nocturnal animals made it all worth. Altogether it was one of the best place anyone can visit while finishing there 2000 miles long road-trip.
  • 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.
