This is very impressive! The early engineering of this bridge was remarkable. It’s current state following its partial destruction is impressive & demonstrates the power of nature vs our best attempts. My personal view is that the visitor centre is worth a quick review but...More

My wife and I visited the Kinzua Skywalk. I was there 10-15 years ago I believe. When I was there, I don’t remember the Skywalk or the park office. It is a very nice setup with an educational museum and displays inside the office. The...More

During the peak travel season in October, the staff/volunteers are ready for the leaf-peepers. The signs guide you to this state park. Overflow parking, with adjacent bathrooms, are nearby. People direct the motorists to the available parking spaces. The beautiful Visitor’s Center is modern. The...More

This place is amazing. Views are awesome. Going through history of the bridge is very cool. Although there are no fall colors now, it seems all the leaves have already fallen. We were a bit disappointed about that.

This place is dynamic. Wow. You are literally on top of the forest. The colors are gorgeous right now. Autumn is in full effect. It wasn’t too crowded. The weather was a little damp but it didn’t hinder a thing. Absolutely breathtaking views. Can’t wait...More

The trail that we walked, took us about 45 minutes. It's going to depend on how long you stay and look around the ruins at the bottom of the skywalk. We did not take the other trail. We didn't know the area and didn't... More

Not sure what “traffic” you are referring to, but we didn’t have any issues. We were there on a Monday afternoon, while there were others at the park/bridge, it certainly wasn’t packed nor were there any traffic delays.
