New River Gorge Bridge

Newer Older

This bridge is 876 feet high and is the second longest steel arc bridge in the world. On the 3rd Saturday in October, the bridge is shut down and people rappel or BASE jump off of it. It's the only day that you are allowed to walk across the bridge. Of course the best way to see it is to raft the New River that day and watch the jumpers from below.

    That's funny, I never really thought of it that way. You really can't see down to river from the top of the bridge. but it is an incredible view.
