I was excited to see this bridge and explore. But when we came last September 2017 US 2 was closed due to construction on the bridge. So.. this year September 2018. The bridge is still closed due to construction. When will this be open?

We were going to stop on our way through but were detoured around the bridge/gorge. A local told us it'll be closed until Nov, and if you wanted to walk a mile you could get to it. Disappointed, but the road work needs to be...More

You could easily just drive over and not notice the view. You can walk out on the bridge itself for a great view as well as take a trail under the bridge and down to the river (beware that is is about 150 feet down...More

Spend 30 minutes here to stretch your legs and check out this bridge and the roaring stream in the valley below. The stair case is very safe, although be forewarned it is equivalent to 15 stories (~149' down, but also back up). So those with...More

When my traveling partner said we had to stop and see a bridge, I was like "really?" We had crossed the Mackinac Bridge and that was impressive, how could a significantly smaller bridge be a big deal? Well, it is! Driving over the bridge you...More
