“The Previous 8th Wonder!”
The 339-acre Kinzua Bridge State Park offers visitors a chance to walk the Kinzua Bridge skywalk. Located in McKean County, this park is the home of the newly reinvented Kinzua Viaduct. The Viaduct, once known as the longest and tallest railroad structure at 2,053 feet long and 301 feet high, was partially destroyed by a tornado in 2003. In 2011, the engineering masterpiece was reinvented as a new pedestrian walkway where visitors can stroll 600 feet out on the remaining support towers, peer miles out into the Kinzua Gorge as well as peer down into the partial glass platform at the end of the walkway. Picnicking and trail opportunities are available. The new Kinzua State Park Visitor Center and Park Office features great views, exhibits, and information on the surrounding area. The Kinzua Bridge Scenic Byway is a designated shared use hike/bike corridor.
Soooo cool!!!! It's free, doesn't take a long time, and makes for some AWESOME photos!
AMAZING VIEWS! (Yes the all caps are needed!) I loved reading about the history of the bridge then going and seeing what was left of it. The panorama view was beautiful. They even had a glass bottom viewing spot to look down through and see to the ground waaaaaaaaay below. I was only brave enough to stand on it for a few moments and grab a picture before returning safely to the non-glass floor!
This was a great stop. The view was amazing, the walk out to the end was very cool. Great photo area too; wish we had more time to hike down to the bottom of the valley.
You know, in Denmark (Herning city) we got "løvbakkerne", and this is actually pretty similar... but definetely a visit worth! - We did some off trail hiking, and in spring with water flowing along the trail, you could take some pretty awesome pictures :D
AMAZING! It was mid-March when we went - the wind out on the bridge was bitter and the entire thing was iced over so we basically skated to the end. It was still incredible to see the ruin of the old. The view was breathtaking. I would love to see it when the trees are in full leaf but I think it would be impressive in any season
