Flew into Pittsburg, PA, It was about a 3 hour drive, through beautiful mountains and winding roads. The view of the Gorge from the visitor center are beautiful, there are a couple of trails that lead to to a lookout to view the brige.

There is a road you can drive down to get under the bridge and the views from it are breath taking. The bridge itself and the location are definitely photo worthy. If you are in the area, I would recommend checking it out.

Came here to see the trees in the fall and the bridge fest. It was nice, but hard to see the jumpers opening their shutes. Food was the same on both sides of the bridge. They could sell a lot more with different options. I'd...More

rafted under the river and saw the well-designed architecture, longest single arch bridge in the western hemisphere, white water rafting was adrenaline rushing, healthy trees in the surrounding

We stopped as the sun was setting and the views were great .a beautiful deck to see the sights. Picnic areas to stop for a bite. Clean washrooms. A nice afternoon for a family hike or a quick break to unwind

The national visitor center is nice and the view of the bridge is nice - I guess we were expecting more hiking or more views of the river. But everything is clean and well maintained.

There are two walking paths down. The better one is a boardwalk style staircase that takes you to a viewing location. It is fairly strenuous, but does have resting stations along the way. There is also a paved path that... More
