Great scenery - while there and during the drive to and from. The bridge is about to turn 200 - a lot of history. It is NOT handicap accessible.

The Bridge was beautiful. This bridge has much history, please so read the history before visiting. I also met some locals while visiting the bridge who were very nice. I enjoyed my visit. I would consider this a "must see" during your visit!

great historic bridge. plenty of hiking trails, but wear hiking shoes and bring gear. kids can play in water, and plenty of wildlife. bridge said to be haunted on full moon nights, also some mysteries on some trails. worth the trip.

This bridge is gorgeous! We stayed for a while and played in the creek. My daughter is in a wheelchair and I had to hold her on the very short hike down to the creek. It isn’t accessible.

Our family loves to visit historical places and we enjoyed our visit to see the oldest bridge in South Carolina. To think this was the main road from Charleston SC to Asheville NC in the early 1800s is remarkable in the days of interstate highways....More
