A limited, but pretty view of the bridge. The path is handicap accessible, and very short, which is nice. There are stairs at the end where you can walk down below the bridge - but that would be a SERIOUS stair climb back up! The visit center is nice and clean, which a nice historical exhibit and a mini theater that plays a 15 minute video about the bridge and New River area. Worth the stop, but it won't be your best view of the bridge.
