This boardwalk offers scenic views of the gorge and New River Gorge Bridge. An easy walk on a fully assessable ramp leads to the first viewing point, while 178 steps descend to the lower overlook. The trail starts at the Canyon Rim Visitor Center parking lot off U.S. Route 19 in Lansing. For the Boardwalk Trail, park in the visitor center parking area and follow the paved sidewalk that leads west (away from the Visitor Center). Drop down a long flight of wooden stairs to a dramatic overlook of the Gorge and the Bridge.

Awesome views. Stairs can be killer but well worth it.

Not a bad hike/ walk. The wooden boardwalk is a set of stairs that takes you down to an amazing overlook of the New River Gorge and the Bridge.
