Bridge Day is the largest extreme sports event in the world and is held on the third Saturday in October every year in Fayette County, West Virginia.
Bridge Day was first celebrated in 1980 to commemorate the completion of the New River Gorge Bridge, the world's second longest single arch bridge. Today, it is rated one of the top 100 festivals in North America, and a must-see if you're planning an autumn vacation in southern West Virginia.
The festival is unique in that it is the only day visitors may walk across the bridge.
BASE jumpers can parachute from the railing and rappellers are allowed to descend and ascend fixed ropes. Vendors line both ends of the bridge selling crafts, shirts, photos, souvenirs, and refreshments. The spectacular fall foliage of the New River Gorge frames the event which is expected to attract hundreds of BASE jumpers and around 80,000 spectators this year.
"BASE" is an acronym which stands for the four categories of objects from which one can jump - Building, Antenna, Span (the word used for a bridge), and Earth (the word used for a cliff.) Although 876 feet is extremely high, it is a quick 8 seconds from the bridge to the water of the New River below. Most jumpers will fall from the bridge 3-4 seconds before deploying their parachute, and then spend the next 20-30 seconds floating down to the designated landing zone located at the water's edge.
If your vacation plans bring you to The Resort at Glade Springs in October, come enjoy Bridge Day, West Virginia's largest one-day festival!

Tour a real underground coal mine at the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine, southern West Virginia's most popular coal heritage destination.
The Exhibition Coal Mine recently completed an extensive renovation that includes the 14,000 sq. foot Rahall Company Store, visitor center, coal museum, fudgery, and gift shop. A family vacation visit begins with the extensive collection of mining artifacts and tools, geological specimens, photographs, and other features of early life among the coal towns of southern West Virginia.
The main attraction is an actual tour that takes you below ground, under the supervision of an experienced veteran coal miner.
Traveling 1,500 feet beneath the hillsides of New River Park, you'll be carried along the track, riding authentic "man cars" from the mine entrance to old working areas of the coal mine and back. Stops throughout the tour explore the history of low-seam coal mining in West Virginia, from the hand-loading days into the era of modern mechanization.
In addition to the underground mine tour, you can explore the historical coal camp situated throughout the grounds.
Lovingly restored, the Coal Company House, Superintendent's Home, Pemberton Coal Camp Church, and the Helen Coal Camp School, offer a true representation of early 20th-century coal camp life.
A family vacation in southern West Virginia must include Beckley's Exhibition Coal Mine. Bring a jacket - the mine is always 58 degrees!

Wild Cave Tours
Ever wonder what lies beneath your feet? Take a walk on the wild side and find out!
Wild cave tours at Lost World Caverns provide the more adventurous an opportunity to go beyond the standard walking tour and explore undeveloped parts of the cavern. Expert guides will lead you on a four-hour trip through more than a mile of chambers and passageways that require some strength and agility to negotiate. At the end of the journey, you will emerge from the cave covered in mud but will be rewarded with the experience of a lifetime.
No special equipment is necessary. Beyond your own clothing and boots, you will be outfitted with helmets, lights, kneepads, and gloves. A light snack and water are provided during the tour and your guide will capture your experience on film, from the start to the muddy end. We have showers available to get cleaned up afterwards and we will provide a hot picnic lunch for everyone on the trip at the end. Each person will receive a set of photos of the expedition on a CD at no extra charge.

Fly through the trees and see a different view of the New River Gorge!
Elevated above the trees, you’ll have unspoiled views of the lush, ever-changing forests of West Virginia as you scale the mountainside during your ride in the sky. Below the zipline, there’s history on the land which was once one of the many working surface mines in the state.
Transportation is available to and from all zipline excursions for an additional fee.
Gorgeside Canopy Tour
The only zipline course with views of the Gorge, ACE’s New River Gorge zipline tour includes 9 zip cliffside zips. It is as exciting as it is beautiful. The dual zips mean that you can race your friends for bragging rights, and with two sky bridges, you can look down below on the trees and a mountain stream. Experience this incredible zipline journey during the day, or at night, with your path lit only by a headlamp attached to your helmet.
The minimum age for this activity is 8 years old. Each guest will be fitted with a helmet, harness and gloves. The minimum weight to participate is 70 lbs and maximum weight is 250 lbs. Tours will depart rain or shine and are professionally guided.
Bridge Walk Tours
Walk across the New River Gorge on the under structure of the world famous New River Gorge Arch Bridge!
New River Gorge visitors are now able to walk across the canyon on a 24-inch-wide catwalk, 851 feet above the river. The catwalk is an existing structure underneath the roadbed of the New River Gorge Bridge, which is the third highest vehicular bridge in North America and the third longest steel single-span arch bridge in the world.
The Bridge Walk Tours last 2 to 3 hours. Participants begin the tour on the north side of the Bridge where you will enter the catwalk in the midst of the massive iron structure. Before beginning the tour, guests will be securely fastened onto a safety cable making it impossible to fall from the bridge during a Bridge Walk Tour. You will walk the entire 3,030 foot length of the bridge and then ascend a trail to road level where you will be shuttled back to the Bridge Walk headquarters. Bridge Tours move along at a leisurely pace and there is plenty of time to stop for photos, and to discuss features of the Bridge, Gorge and Park with your guide.
Bridge Walk Tour - $72 per person
