  • Walked this bridge early in the morning (6:30) and only passed a handful of people and one dog. Morning light was gorgeous on the river and surrounding areas. If I do this again I will walk both ways....  more

  • Bridge with a nice walkway. There are some plaques giving the history of the bridge and the area. Nice views. 4/5. Would be 5/5 but both the top and bottom walkway went to Nebraska.
  • This I a great place to go walking especially if you love nature or enjoy watching sunsets. I'm here with my brother nearly every day longboarding together or walking with friends. It's a great place to exercise or to simply relax in peace.
