Book your New River Gorge Bridge Walk

Bridge Walk offers guided tours of the New River Gorge Bridge from the catwalk 25’ beneath the 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.

Reviews

What an adventure! It was worth every penny. This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. The folks at Bridge Walk are so knowledgeable and are just about the nicest people you’d ever care to meet. Thank you for a wonderful, memorable experience.

This was an awesome experience! Our guide was really knowledgeable about the bridge and the area. He let us take our time so we could all get good shots of the views with our cameras. He even took pics of everyone on the tour with our cameras. Highly recommend doing this!!

I've been wanting to do this since it opened, and it did not disappoint. It's so unique, where else can you do something like this? Interesting, beautiful, and adventurous without being physically taxing. Told my husband all about it, and now he wants to go, so we'll be back!
