This was provided to my tour group as a surprise by our leader. Definitely not for people with height issues. The walk is short of a mile and you are harnessed in with a safety line. Feels very safe on the catwalk, though. Outstanding views.

I've never done something like this before and it was worth it! The guide was great, the view was spectacular, and I never felt unsafe. It will take you a couple of hours but it goes quickly. In colder months, dress appropriately and wear gloves....More

We were there for bridge day festival. The bridge is amazing to see. If you love the outdoors, this is a great place to visit.

This was definitely worth doing. Our group of 5 did this on a Sunday afternoon. The shaking from the traffic overhead freaked a few of our group out, but everyone ended it being happy they did it! Views are great.
