Huge feat of engineering!

Beautiful bridge! There aren't huge signs of anything so have it marked in your maps before you head out. Limited parking but lots of little areas to possibly park. Great views but if you have little ones, be mindful of the steep slopes.

This site is certainly worth the pull over. Walk along the bluffs for a good view of the bridge and gorgeous Big Sur scenery. One can't help but contemplate the cleverness of the engineers and courage of the construction workers.

You have to appreciate the engineering marvel this bridge was for its time. Several scenic overlooks nearby.

Pulled of here to take in the sights. Parking is easy to get in and out. Plenty of spots when we were there. I have a video of the squirrels on my YouTube account @onecoolraisin.

My wife and I raced over this bridge on our way to Big Sur from Carmel and then made a point to stop for photos on the way back to Carmel. Iconic!

Bridge Beyond

The Bixby is a work of art. It joins the mountains and has such a beautiful cove below. The dirt road to the east offers the best views. This road is best for pictures!

Beautiful bridge and great photo ops
Mar 2021
This was a nice place to stop and get photos. The bridge is beautiful to look at and with the amazing views of Big Sur behind it even more so. I saw people taking wedding photos here also. A word of caution though it gets very busy and you can take pictures on both sides of the road. Crossing the road can be a bit dangerous as some cars don't want to stop for pedestrians or some people jump out in front of the cars. Be careful!

Worth the stop. Scenery is beautiful.

Beautiful scenery. Parking is limited. The view is worth stop! The fog can be tricky. We were able to stop on a clear day at 12:00 and take some great pictures.

As amazing as I thought
Jun 2021
I'm a history nerd. When I planned a trip for my mom and myself, I purposely planned a route that would take us by this bridge. I was worried I wouldn't make it before the sun set (we got hung up in Santa Cruz boardwalk traffic), but we did. I did not stop at the turnout because it was a busy Saturday. But I plan to return on Monday when conditions are safer.

I ask that if you go to see this marvel of engineering genius to please respect the safety of others as well as the surroundings. People live here and we don't want them to resent tourists who come to see the beauty that is the California coastline.
