  • There are six bridges total. All are nice and easy to find. We were there on a week day, and there were only a few visitors at each of the bridges. You will enjoy this one.

  • The better parking are is on the side closest to Winterset. You can park on either but can only get down to the water from the city side, also it's a bit shorter from the more main road to parking on that side. The trees on one end give it a romantic feeling, but for a full view the city side is nicer. I don't know about route,but apparently also a place to put in if you are going tubing, canoeing or kayaking.
  • I really enjoyed seeing these bridges...brings you back to another time..
