FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) - The opening of a breathtaking hiking and biking bridge near Farmville is scheduled to make its official debut.
 
    
Local, state and federal officials are to be in attendance Tuesday for the formal opening of 2,400-foot-long High Bridge. The bridge is the crown jewel of High Bridge Trail State Park, a 31-mile linear park that runs through Nottoway, Cumberland and Prince Edward counties.
 
    
The trail has been in use by hikers, bicyclists and horse riders since April. High Bridge is the last piece of the trail to open, and it's already an attraction.
 
    
State park officials say that since the bridge's opening, attendance has more than doubled compared to the same period last year.
 
    
The bridge towers 125 feet above the Appomattox River.
