  • Perfect pit stop. ๐Ÿšฝ ๐Ÿ’ง ๐Ÿ“ท ๐Ÿšถ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ‘ Definitely stop here on your way to get a jaw-dropping opportunity to look over a 300ft cliff edge at the Crooked River and at these three bridges: one is for trains ๐Ÿš‚, the middle bridge is the old Hwy 97 bridge โ€” now for foot traffic ๐Ÿšถ, and the other bridge is the new and current Hwy 97 bridge ๐Ÿš—. This stop requires 15-20min to fully take in. The path is paved until you reach the train bridge. Then, you have the option to continue walking in a dirt path that leads to a stream that plunges over the cliff edge and provides a great place to take a picture (photo 1). For photographers, youโ€™ll have plenty of options. Donโ€™t forget to read the signposts detailing the history of the area!
  • Absolutely beautiful. Well maintained and clean. Great place to stop and hang out in the shade, relax before getting back on the road. Great place to get some really cool pictures. Just, do not stand on the wall, stand in front of it.
