Wild, Wonderful West Virginia!! The New River Gorge Bridge is a steel arch bridge 3,030 feet long over the New River Gorge near Fayetteville, West Virginia. Love Bridge Day. I have rafted through the rapids under this!!
New River Gorge Bridge This bridge is 876 feet high and is the second longest steel arc bridge in the world. On the 3rd Saturday in October, the bridge is shut down and people rappel or BASE jump off of it. It's the only day that you are allowed to walk across the bridge.
