Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

The tread of this trail can be very steep and rocky at times, so be sure to watch your footing.

Description [Suggest Changes]

Looking for a run with stunning photo opportunities of the New River Gorge Bridge? Go no further than the Bridge Trail. From the trailhead off Fayette Station Rd., head east, climbing moderately for 0.4 miles before plunging sharply into a series of switchbacks clinging to the gorge rim. Continue down the trail, being sure to watch your footing on the rock-laden tread, until reaching a flat section of trail directly under the bridge. Take your time, and marvel at the feat of construction above you.

Once you've taken in this scenic and famous bridge, you have the option of returning the way you came, or continuing onward to the trail junction with the Fayetteville Trail.
