I liked the Historic Gillespie Dam Bridge Interpretive Plaza. We went walking first and then we went by car. It was fabulous. Then we went down to the Historic Gillespie Dam Bridge we saw it perfectly. There were a bodies of water nearby. We had fun and enjoyed this attraction. By the way it is historic.

A lovely day trip, heading out from the Sun City area. The drive is interesting, through small towns and farmland. When you get to the Gillespie Bridge, it's a very rusty, very picturesque bridge. The old dam is visible and you can walk to it. Not really much of anything there, but the bridge. People were fishing and riding dirt bikes. We really enjoyed it.

This is a cool old narrow bridge with a view of the busted dam. Photographers probably love this for shots. Not much beyond that though.

The ride itself out to the bridge is filled with great scenery if you go out old AZ 80. Take the walk out to the fallen dam to see a variety of wild life and a bit of Arizona History. The bridge itself is amazing and awesome for pictures.
