It's a nice view of the river. You better have a vehicle with clearance. the road is 2+ miles in the woods down a road that's rock, mud and clay. But once you make that then it's a short hike to the bridge. It's easy...More

This is a very short hike and beautiful scenery. Takes a while to get there but it’s worth the drive. You really need an SUV or truck to get down the last 3 miles. Beautiful spot.

The title may get your expectations up a little too high because the bridge isn't really that long, but it's still a fun experience! The area is beautiful and (when we were there) quiet and peaceful. Getting to the bridge is a bit of an...More

We were worried like others about the three mile gravel road and rain all week. We had no issues and only two other vehicles parked there. Worth it and fun exploring and hiking all around the bridge. Don’t let the gravel road determine if you...More

The bridge was a nice easy walk from the parking area. It was well structured and I felt totally safe. The view was incredible and the water was clear.

Definitely worth the fairly long dirt road you have to travel down to get to the trail. The path was easy to navigate with a 3 year old. The bridge is pretty close to the beginning of the trail. Our group of 10 really enjoyed...More

We took the approximately three mile gravel road to this area. It was one way and we met several cars that required backing up and pulling off to the side. When we got to the end of the road, there was space for several cars...More
