Inscription.  This walkway leads to views of the New River Bridge. An easily-accessible upper overlook provides a scenic view framed by trees. From there the walkway descends 200 feet down a steep stairway to a broad view of the bridge, gorge, and New River 600 feet below. Informational exhibits explain the view.

If you descend to the lower overlook: *Be careful! *The trip down is easy, the trip back, strenuous. *Benches along the way provide rest stops. * Watch your step. Footing can be uneven.
