We only had a short time to explore & the hotel concierge told us to see the bridge if nothing else & she was right. It was EXTREMELY windy that day, but other than that it was really nice. Very relaxed atmosphere. Lots of people enjoying area, children, dogs, bicycles, etc... Beautiful place to relax & enjoy.

This is a wonderful place to take photos. Its great for background shots as well as wedding pictures. The history of this area is astounding. I'm not going to spoil it for you....just make sure you read the signage while you are there. Make a good spot for a picnic too!

The Poinsett Bridge is a hidden gem in SC. The architecture of the bridge is beautiful and the area is great for exploring.

A tiny remnant of history, but beautiful setting, nice trails, pretty streams, decent parking. Very close to Restaurant 17 for a simple lunch or fancy dinner!

Greenville, South Carolina has been "born again". I left there in 1967, and I am in awe of the outstanding development that has taken place. This bridge and the surrounding area should be on all visitor's "Must See" list. You will love it !

This bridge is a work of art along with being an architectural achievement to be standing in such stellar condition. Beautiful wooded area with a stream going through it.. GPS might not bring you to the exact spot, so keep trying until you find it!

The Poinsett Bridge is an important piece of our history. Try to envision the route of traffic to Asheville, with the bridge being the only indication of this route. The entire area is beautiful forest.

Found a review from last year about seeing a large water moccasin near the bridge. There are no water moccasins in this part of SC. We do have rattle snakes and copperheads but if it was a large snake it was probably harmless. Even though the boy scout camp doesn't want you parking on their property and hiking there without...

This bridge is different from most. It is a park and photo location. There is walking around the area, but nothing special. There is a boyscout camp nearby, but you are not supposed to walk on their trails.
