Our adventure partner, Bridge Walk, LLC, will provide expert safety instruction and all the necessary safety gear, including harnesses. They’ll also share about the bridge’s history!
You’ll want to wear closed-toed shoes and dress for the weather forecast. Wind, rain, or snow may be coming at you from the sides or below (remember, you’ll be over 800 feet above the New River Gorge)!
Cameras and phones are allowed, but they must be secured to your person. Glasses must also be secured, and lanyards for clipping valuables are available for purchase at Bridge Walk. Leave gum, food, drinks, tobacco products, unsecured car keys, and anything else you might accidentally drop into the abyss back in your vehicle.
Bridge Walk is owned and operated by Bridge Walk, LLC. They’re our partners, so you’ll begin your adventure at Bridge Walk’s headquarters, which is just across highway 19 from Adventures on the Gorge and walking distance from the New River Gorge National Park Visitor Center.
Your adventure will last 2-3 hours. Consider the Bridge Walk as a mild hike that stretches for almost a mile long.
Bridge Walk uses an extensive safety system. Everyone will be secured by harness to steel cables to ensure the safety of all guests.
Every third Saturday of October, route 19 over the New River Gorge Bridge is closed. BASE jumpers, rappellers, and ziplines from across the globe gather to have fun jumping and zipping from the bridge while thousands of spectators look on from the bridge railings. You can book Bridge Walk on this day, but spots are very limited. Be sure to reserve early so you can experience seeing parachute jumpers whiz past your position. It’s a one-in-a-lifetime experience!
