Forgot to ask before - Can you walk out on the bridge or is there an oerlook where you can look down on the river. Thanks
You don't say which bridge--- I'm guessing the New River Bridge.
If that is correct, then no, there is no place to stop on the bridge, but there are scenic overlooks including Hawk's Nest State Park nearby- very impressive views.
The US 19/New River Gorge Bridge (yeah, that's what I would assume too. I mean what other bridge could it be?) has clear "No Stopping" signs on it.
On the north side of the bridge, there's a National Park Service visitors and information center, that also has a nice, tiered deck for viewing just off the parking lot.
Good poop. Thanks a lot.
There is now a company that offers catwalk tours of the bridge. www.bridgewalk.com
