Canyon Rim Visitor Center is the closest visitor center to Gauley River National Recreation Area. The primary purpose of Canyon Rim Visitor Center is to act as a visitor contact station for area information and for interpretation of the natural, cultural, recreational, and historic values of the New River Gorge. With an estimated 300,000 visitors each year, the center provides the park with a nationally recognized facility, revealing the beauty of New River Gorge National River to the nation and the world.
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.
Very pretty view, lots of stairs though! Just a heads up.
Great little stop on our trip!
