Foxfire Mountain offers more than your average adventure park, whether it’s ziplining over a waterfall or off-roading in an ATV, there are many fun-filled activities the whole family can enjoy. One of the many incredible things about Foxfire Mountain is the beautiful trails you can hike, that cross multiple bridges. One of these bridges includes a swinging bridge called The Bridge to Prosperity. Here are 3 things to know about this bridge that make it truly a unique experience:
1. It’s the longest bridge in America.
Strung by hundreds of feet of cable, The Bridge of Prosperity is 4 feet wide and over 400 feet long (longer than a football field!). The bridge spans from the base camp at Foxfire Mountain across Dunn’s Gorge to Prosperity Mountain.
2. It really swings!
Built in 2012, The Bridge of Prosperity was made with the ability to swing, but it is sturdy enough to be completely safe. The bridge is anchored at each end by over 30 tons of concrete and is capable of holding over 24,000 lbs.
3. It’s open for people of all ages.
The Bridge of Prosperity is part of the family fun Bridge Adventure tour, which is open for all ages! It even includes an on-the-ground obstacle course for both kids and adult kids to enjoy.
4. There’s only a small fee!
The Bridge Adventure is only $19.95 for adults and free for children under 8 (The Bridge Adventure is included free with the Bear Crawler Tour or Zip Line Tour)! A Wish Book and trail book is also offered. No reservations are required.
5. Groups are welcome!
