Kinzua Sky Walk – New Viewing Platform
Walk the Tracks Across the Sky – the Kinzua Sky Walk extends out 624 feet into the Kinzua Gorge, offering 360 degrees of amazing views year-round. Watch the fly-over video.
Visitors now have access to a portion of the bridge largely off limits since a 2003 tornado sheared the structure — once touted as the “World’s Longest Railroad Bridge” — in half.
It is all thanks to a newly opened picture viewing platform located underneath the bridge, near its southern abutment. The platform provides a unique photo op found only on the bridge’s underside. The strategic location offers what appears to be a 3-D image of the inside of the bridge’s support towers in the background.
The observation platform is the latest in the ongoing reinvention of Kinzua Bridge State Park as a tourist destination.
Turkey, black bear, white tailed deer and a mixed bag of small game, including squirrel and grouse, can make your visit here a dream hunting adventure.
McKean County public lands open to hunters include 135,396 acres of Allegheny National Forest and five state game lands with a total of almost 25,000 acres.
