The addition of the skywalk platform and extension of the portion of the Kinsua Bridge that you can access on foot is a vast improvement. It is an undeniably beautiful vista. But there really is not much else to see at the Bridge itself beyond the ruins, which are off-limits. There is a small picnic area and (seasonal) bathrooms, plus a port-a-potty that seems to be open year-round, with some historic interpretive elements. Some of the signage to the park coming from the north is wrong and misdirects travellers. Sadly, after a 75% drop in attendance, the Knox Kane Railroad that used to operate an excursion train tour to the bridge apparently stopped running in 2004 and we heard there are plans to rip up the tracks and sell them for scrap metal. We originally visited the site shortly after the 2003 tornado that devastated the other half of the bridge, and had hoped they had preserved a particularly twisted steel bench that had been damaged by the storm, but it was gone. There is apparently also a 1.09 mile hiking trail which we did not have a chance to explore, but for a 328-acre state park I guess I was expecting more areas the public could access. I'd like to come back in the autumn. Site claims to be wheelchair accessible but I doubt many could push up and down the sloped (paved) walkways to the bridge and outlook platforms easily. Free parking and no access fees.
