High Bridge Park and Historic Bridge
When built in 1877, High Bridge was the highest railroad trestle in the world. As part of the busiest north-south route in the nation, it is still used heavily today. The restored High Bridge Park, known as the jewel of the Kentucky River Parks, is open to the public, and features a huge Victorian Pavilion on the top of the famed River Palisades, a heart stopping overlook of the Kentucky River Gorge, a playground, museum and facilities for picnicking. Each August, High Bridge Park is home to the High Bridge Homecoming Festival.
