I was hesitating to drive up to the New River from Lexington, as we were scheduled to drive back to philly on the same day. I’m so glad that we did it. One of the most spectacular inland places of my life. Loved the drive...More

You have to see it to believe it. No review necessary. This bridge is a marvel unto itself. There are many underlooks and scenic views. Drive Fayette Station Road for it's best views.

First, it cost less than two cents to visit. It's a million dollar view from the canyon rim visitors center. I'm 63 years old and the walk to the the outdoor viewing area was 167 steps. The walk back up might be a challenge.

The bridge is pretty as long as you get out and walk a trail to see it. Nothing spectacular to look at when driving over it. But beware, small towns all around it that have several police looking for out of state plates. Someone was...More

The Kaymoor Miner’s Trail is a very strenuous trail. There are 800 steps down and 800 steps back up. There are so many trails in the area that have awesome views. Consider the Endless Wall trail or Long Point Trail. The... More

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
