  • Interesting little bridge. My wife and I were coming through town on our honeymoon and wanted to stop at a swinging bridge, so we found this one and decided to stop by and see it. Not being from the area, we didn't know what to expect; but we stopped to check it out anyway. It was much smaller than I thought it was going to be, and in a residential area which I was not expecting. Once we got there we found that there is no place to park, so we had to park at a restaurant up the road and walk down to the bridge. We got to the other side and found that it is all private property and you can't actually step off of the bridge. It was still a nice stop though and only a few minutes out of the way for us.
  • Fun little stop. There are several nice places to pull over and see the river all along the road. Beautiful place!
