We LOVE the New River Gorge and have actually done the high-line off of the bridge on bridge day (harness up, walk out under the bridge on the catwalk, clip on, climb out on the girders, and DROP OFF - it was awesome). If you can stay until October 19th, it is Bridge Day. They close the bridge and the base jumpers jump off the bridge; Rapellers are climbing and rapelling below it; Rafters and kayakers can run the river then stop just before the bridge and watch the jumpers. They have vendors and local merchants set up booths. It's a heck of a party! The next day is usually the final dam release for the Gauley so even more fun. Even if you can't stay until the 19th, try the bridge walk where you they take you out on the catwalk (you just don't jump off). If you do it, tell Benji that Holly and John say hello and we plan to get back up that way eventually. Benji runs the bridge walk and is the one that put us down that high line... as well as off the cliffs at the top of the gorge... and rafting the New and Gauley rivers... and then we brought out the Jack Daniels to celebrate the end of the season - YEE HA! We really need to get back there. We hope you have an absolutely wonderful time there.
