A large crowd gathers at the very end of the new Sky Walk, a pedestrian walkway at the Kinzua Bridge State Park near Mt. Jewett. The Sky Walk sits atop towers that once supported the historic Kinzua Viaduct. A tornado in 2003 destroyed the midsection of the bridge. Visitors on the Sky Walk have a panoramic view of the Kinzua Creek gorge and can see the rubble from the fallen bridge in the valley below. The Sky Walk attracted large crowds over the weekend as the 16th Fall Festival was held at the park.
