Read about the stories and history in advance. I hadn't been back to Cornell in a long time, and I somehow wish I had used this bridge more when I was a student there. My kids loved it. And definitely worth the view. I understand...More

The bridge was cool to walk over but for $18 not worth it and the restaurant being closed was very disappointing since that was our lunch plan and the fact that it wasn’t noted on the website that they will not open it all summer.

When you have heard all the stories of deaths from this bridge and see the netting which has been placed to prevent further tragedies, this bridge can be a bit daunting. Bouncing across provides a spectacular view of the gorge though.

I went over this a couple times while studying Medicine and the Humanities in a postdoc with Prof Sander Gilman, German and Psychiatry. It was the shortest way to my friend's residence, soo.. But the gorges are wonderful.

The bridge is nothing spectacular but the view of the gorge is gorgeous. Legend has it if you kiss on the bridge you marry that person. Be careful who you’re with!!

A cool suspension bridge, it is just sad that they have to put all the netting up to prevent people from jumping.

We came here at 4:30 and had the surprise of seeing sunset over the gorge. There is an expansive view of fall creek gorge and the power station. There was parking on the residential side but only 4-5 spots. Luckily there was no one here.

I only had a short time to see the bridge and falls. I parked near the Johnson Art Museum early on a Sunday morning and made a quick walk to the bridge. It was definitely worth it! My only disappointment was the the safety netting...More

I bring all my out of state friends to walk over this bridge...especially the ones afraid of heights. The view is amazing as well. While standing on the bridge when another person walks from the other side it bounces and sways a bit for that...More

It's a little tricky to find this place from the residential side - where there IS parking - but the campus side doesn't really have parking. But, free, fun, beautiful...a little unnerving when it bounces...
