Experience a thrilling catwalk tour on the New River Gorge Bridge as you traverse the narrow walkway 850-feet above the river. This guided tour features secure harnesses and cables along the vast expanse beneath the world famous New River Gorge Bridge.
The tours are 2-3 hours in length. After checking in, Bridge Walk guests are shuttled to the Canyon Rim Visitor’s Center on the north side of the Bridge. A short path leads to the Bridge where guests enter the catwalk in the midst of the massive iron structure.
The catwalk is 24″ wide with a substantial railing. Before beginning the tour, guests are securely fastened onto a safety cable making it impossible to fall from the Bridge during a tour. The Bridge Walk guests walk the entire 3,030 foot length of the Bridge and then are shuttled back to the Bridge Walk headquarters. Bridge tours move along at a leisurely pace and there is plenty of time to stop for photos, and to discuss features of the Bridge, New River Gorge and National Park with your guide
