New River Gorge

The Canyon Rim Boardwalk trail is one of the shortest trails a hiker can take to clear views of the New River Gorge span bridge.

The trail is initially a paved decline leading to its first observation deck looking over the gorge and partially obstructed views of the bridge.

Below this deck, 176 steps leads hikers down to the lower observation platform with clear, unobstructed views of the New River Gorge Bridge.

    This looks pretty sweet. Did I miss where the New River Gorge is? I might want to get down there for a hike. Cool pics and keep up the good work.
