  • Cool area. Do not attempt to walk on the bridge if you have a fear of heights. You are really high up. There is a lot of movement when big trucks drive across the bridge. Great views!
  • Great place to stop on the way to somewhere, have a picnic, enjoy the view, walk around a bit. There's a clean restroom and the picnic tables are under a roof that provides enough shade/protection from rain.
