    Walk the "Tracks Across the Sky"

    Kinzua Viaduct, once standing as the world's longest and tallest viaduct, has been reconstructed into a pedestrian walkway after being nearly destroyed by a tornado.

    For over a century, the “Tracks Across the Sky” have attracted visitors from near and far. The Kinzua Viaduct was originally the world’s longest and highest viaduct, constructed in just 94 days in 1882.  In July of 2003 a tornado swept through the gorge, toppling 11 of 20 towers.

    In 2011, Kinzua State Park celebrated the Grand Opening of the Kinzua Sky Walk, where visitors could once again "Walk the Tracks Across the Sky!"  Stroll out 600 feet to a viewing platform over 200 feet above the gorge featuring a partial glass floor.  Twisted and scattered bridge towers remain along the valley floor, providing a glimpse of the destruction from the powerful tornado.
