This is truly a wonderful roadside park. There are are trails on and beneath the bridge. The lower trail leads to Lake Michigan. I wish we had more time to spend here!!

You park at the top of the park near the bridge and hike down towards the river and lake shoreline. It's really not a bad hike down and very scenic views of the lake. There are longer hikes along the river that we did not go.

Great hiking and easy to take stairs. Except for the return trip up. But, the views are beautiful and my kids had fun playing in the water.

270+ steps to the bottom, A beautiful vuew of Lake Michigan. We've been stopping here for years. At the bottom of the stairs is a very shallow stream. Ice cold enough to freeze your ankles. The kids love this place. Not a good place for swimming too many rocks in the water, but a great place for wading. Down the beach a little way is a spring. The kids call it the sinking sand, you can stand in it and sink to your knees. It is very cold. Every year I bring a group of kids to the U. P. and given theur choice they always pick this place.

This walk was beautiful but there is around 272 steps down to the base to see where the river and lake connect but there is a spot before that you can stop and get pics from under the bridge and see that fairy tales are real as you see the door where the trolls live if you go through the tunnel you will come out on the other side of the road very cool spot 😎

My in-laws told me about this bridge and we were stopping on the way to our destination. First glance, I thought it was a normal bridge. Then my husband and I took the stairs down one side and up the other onto the other side of the road. The bridge architecture is awesome, and the views are stunning. One side was trees and the other views of the lake. Definitely worth a stop if you pass by. You'll get to stretch you legs and see some nice views.

My husband and I have been coming up here for years and never stopped until recently. It's pretty; scenic. There are A LOT of stairs heading down to where the Cut River dumps into Lake Michigan. There are bathrooms on the North side of the highway; the stairs down to the lake are on the South side. Once you get down the stairs there are hiking trails. It's worth a stop if you are in the area.

We were told to stop by and it was definitely a nice stop along the way. The bridge seemed to be under construction and we couldn’t really walk down, but we were able to walk under it and take good pictures. It was a really quick stop when in the UP. I do keep hearing that the construction has been going on for years!!!!

We loved exploring under the bridge and even found a Troll’s home. Beautiful views with unique under bridge scenery. A lot of stairs and a lot of walking. The park is closed for construction but we parked across the street by Seaway Painting’s construction trailer. Well worth the stop but be careful of poison ivy along parts of the path.
