New River Gorge Bridge

Drones in a National Park?

The New River Gorge Bridge is one of the longest steel arch bridges in the world, making it a top tourist attraction in West Virginia. However, the iconic bridge is located within the boundaries of the New River Gorge National River. As a park administered by the NPS, drones cannot takeoff, land, or operate from New River Gorge National River property. However, they CAN be flown over NPS (New River Gorge) property if the operations take place off of NPS property.
