  • There's an overlook that you can park and walk a trail beside the road to see the massive pillars and bridge panels and look at it hanging over the mountain Awesome experience to walk up and see it for yourself
  • Beauty as a simple bridge into nature. Stop and pause. Smell the air ,open your eyes wide and travel the mountains with your eyes. You will gain a tranquil outlook.
  • If you like highway engineering, you must stop here. Most of us that appreciate structural construction, drive the BRP or have read the history of that project are attracted to examine the Viaduct. In addition to the Information Center, the continuous playing video and the scale model of the actual site during construction, there is a paved walking trail to and under the Viaduct. Another must do while your there.
  • The Linn Cove Viaduct is amazing to see in person and learn how engineers designed this last part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The are some beautiful views along the Viaduct, but make sure you stop at the Visitor Center. In here you will find all the history and information about building the Linn Cove Viaduct, as well as a gift shop and restrooms. There is also a hiking trail you can take that will lead you underneath the Viaduct for some more amazing views. There is an overlook on the trail, just a short distance from the Visitor Center, or you can keep climbing up to explore the huge boulders that the Viaduct was built around.
  • Cool road to drive over and also hike underneath. Nice visitor center with historical info about the area and the viaduct's creation. Public restrooms right off the Parkway and scenic mountains all around. The Visitor Center is even run by solar energy collected just off the parking lot.
