The Kinzua Bridge Skywalk at Kinzua Bridge State Park in Kane, Pennsylvania is an easy 0.4-mile out-and-back trail that leads to the end of the tornado-damaged Kinzua Bridge, featuring amazing views of the Kinzua Gorge.

From the end of the 600-foot long skywalk path, which follows the remanence of the Kinzua Bridge, hikers get views of the Kinzua Gorge and the surrounding mountains. At the end of the skywalk is a glass floor where you can peer into the gorge below.

The old railroad bridge was retrofitted with a railing and a wooden walkway, but the center of the walkway are the original railroad ties, so you can peer into into the gorge below. Also be careful not to drop your phone through the spaces between the railroad ties while taking pictures.

History: The Kinzua Viaduct was once the longest and tallest railroad structure at 2,053 feet long and 301 feet high until it was partially destroyed by a tornado during 2003. The land was reinvented in 2011 as a state park for visitors and hikers to explore.

Pets: Dogs are allowed on this trail on leash and their waste must be carried out.

Warning: If you're afraid of heights, this trail can be a bit terrifying.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
