Drive across, drive under, hike along the gorge on numerous trails, hike down to the water, kayak or raft under it or walk the cat walk under it! So many things to do around this mighty bridge!

Stopped at this attraction for a quick stop in the winter and would highly recommend it! Took boardwalk trail to look out point for the bridge, took 5 minutes. It was not at all difficult and was open on a snowy wintry day.

I believe that it is, but it is best to call the national Park service in the area to be sure. I do know that you can see the gorge from inside the visitor center.
