Bridge Walk was founded in 2009 as a cooperative effort between the National Park Service, the West Virginia Division of Highways, and the partners that make up Bridge Walk LLC.
The catwalk has been an existing structure of the Bridge since its original construction, and Bridge Walk LLC saw an opportunity to provide unique tours across the walkway. Creating Bridge Walk required a simple shuttle system, improving the trail access, and installing an innovative safety system for guests making it impossible for tour guests to fall off the Bridge.
Store & Museum
In addition to handling the booking and outfitting of daily tours, the Bridge Walk visitor center houses a souvenir shop, snack bar and unofficial New River Gorge Bridge museum. We have collected a wide variety of photos, videos and memorabilia about the Bridge and its construction, and we invite you to stop in and take a look around.
