We were in Rusk for the Texas State Railroad but figured we'd look for another cheap attraction. The footbridge is pretty neat, really long and tucked under some beautiful trees. We spent about 20 minutes there and took some photos. Cute place to visit!

This is a very long walking footbridge. It's got history, plus is a very nice setting for taking pictures. Highly recommend for visitors to see this neat part of history of our little town.
