My travel buddy and I were surprised and delighted by what we saw when our Route 66 nostalgia tour arrived at the Pony Bridge. Not having done our homework (and forgetting the relevant scene from Grapes of Wrath), we were not expecting to see such...More

It was a much longer bridge than I was expecting. I wish they had a spot to park to take a photo. Had to take them while driving over it. Glad I was the passenger.

The steady sweep of the hill near Bridgeport makes the approach to the Pony Bridge from the east all the more impressive. Certain bridges are R66 icons, and this one has to be at the highest level. Stop, enjoy, experience - a masterpiece of highway...More

Built in 1934, this bridge is on ODOT'S endangered list. It is 3900 feet long, nearly 3/4 of a mile, and has 38 trusses. A beautiful piece of Oklahoma and Route 66 history.

This bridge has withstood the test of time and the swirling and sometimes raging waters of the South Canadian River over which it carries its passengers along U.S. Route 66(yes, that one!). As a child, I counted the "ponies" every time my dad's vehicle took...More

The spectacle of this bridge is worth the out-of-the-way trip along the oldest of paths of Route 66. Beautiful spans of gold cross the Canadian River. I parked along the east side of the bridge facing west. The west side doesn't allow for much parking...More

Long bridge with interesting architecture. Crosses over the South Canadian River between Hinton & Geary, OK. The only disappointment was the lack of a place to pull over for photos while on the bridge. There does not appear to be enough room to safely walk...More

Nice little bridge that connects Geary to Hinton with a shorter distance, and coming from I-40 get off on first Geary-Watonga exit. It has a great view of South Canadian river and the sand bar area where people ride 4-wheelers, etc.
