Walk Across A 200-Foot Suspension Bridge On NROCK’s Via Ferrata In West Virginia

The via ferrata (“iron path”) has been used for centuries in Europe to navigate sharp rock faces, but perhaps the most famous early via ferratas were constructed in Italy during World War I to aid the movement of troops in the high Dolomite mountain regions. But these rugged iron paths, though they are reserved for the most rugged of mountain peaks, aren’t just for European rock climbers. There’s one right here in West Virginia as well.
