Bridge Walk

Enjoy the adrenaline rush of your life as you cross the New River Gorge on a 24-inch wide steel catwalk, 850 feet above the river.

Stretching for 3,030 feet, the New River Gorge Bridge is the longest steel arch bridge in North America. A West Virginian icon, it is located along the U.S. Route 19 and crossed by more than 16,200 motor vehicles every day.

We partnered with Bridge Walk to bring you this one of a kind experience, and ensure your safety in crossing the New River Gorge Bridge catwalk.  Bridge Walk is located one exit south of our Resort on U.S. Rt 19, the New River Gorge Canyon Rim Visitor’s Center Exit. 

Get a full day of sky-high adventures when you pair this trip with the TimberTrek Adventure Park, TreeTops Zipline Canopy Tour, or Gravity Ziplines.

Minimum Age: 8

Our adventure partner, Bridge Walk, provides a guide for each trip who will share about the bridge’s history and to ensure each participant’s safety.

Bridge Walk provides harnesses and lanyards for clipping in to the Bridge safety cables.

Dress for the weather with closed-toes shoes; no sandals or flip-flops allowed. If you need to take medications during the three-hour activity, please bring them. Leave car keys and other loose items behind.

Participants must be at least 48 inches tall, 8 years old, and able to wear our harness which fits a maximum waist size of 52″ and thigh circumference of 34″. 

Bridge Walk uses an extensive safety system. Everyone will be secured by harness to steel cables to ensure the safety of all guests. Consider the Bridge Walk as a mild hike that stretches for almost a mile long.
