Most of the area seems closed off. We had a choice between paying $10 per person for a tour or hiking for free. Not knowing what the tour included, we opted for the hike. We had a spectacular view of the bridge, the river and even the train. The rocks were a little slick in spots and be sure to... More

There was a fire last year that destroyed everything around the bridge on both sides and they are feverishly re-building. Don't let that stop you from going. We (The P.T. Cruiser Club) were the first cars allowed on the bridge this season as the approach to the bridge is narrow, one way and unpaved. There were over 60 P.T. Cruisers... More

We drove an hour and a half from Colorado Springs and was very disappointed. I should have consulted Trip Advisor first. You can pay $10 a head for a van to transport you across the bridge and back or pay nothing to to go to the look out. Short hike down to the edge,look at the gorge and see the... More

This natural wonder is beautiful, despite having suffered last year from a large forest fire. An amazing amount of forest was destroyed; and, the bridge was damaged and therefore closed. It is being repaired, but was not available when we visited in August 2014. Undoubtedly the area will recover eventually, but at present it would only count as a secondary... More

The main park was still closed due to the fire last year but we decided to drive up & see how close we could get to the Bridge, found the sign for the Scenic Overlook, so glad we did, parked & hiked a short distance, and had great views of the Canyon, River, & Bridge, even seen some wildlife on...

We got there just before the park is due to re-open after the fire. What can you say, really ? The bridge is lovely, and the new park looks very promising. Such a shame it was destroyed, I was there before and it was very good It really is a must see if you are in this area, if I'm... More

This is our first time to Colorado and even though we knew the bridge was closed, we still chose to drive up and see it from afar. I'm glad that we did, the scenery is breathtaking. There are some great photo opportunities along the road. The fire damage is still visible and is quite amazing.

We wanted to keep our dollars in our own State. The park was closed due to the Wild fire last year. but did go by to take a look. I hope it will and can be restored.
