I can’t wait to visit the area again so I can come back here! The day we came, it was unbelievably cold and windy...too uncomfortable to stay and explore for long...but I did manage to get some really great photos!

The railroad bridge was crazy hard to find. None of the maps we tried had it marked correctly. My suggestion is to find Oral and Facial Surgery of the Shoals LLC. That will take you right to it. It's beautiful at sunset. We spent about...More

The parking area is difficult to find. My GPS did not show the access roads properly. There is a parking lot very near the bridge. It is accessed either by cutting through the parking lot serving the condos and medical office nearby, or by following...More

A little tricky to find, but once you're there the bridge is a fun way to kill an hour or so. The day we were there a couple was taking engagement photos. That said, it does provide a pretty good backdrop for photographers. Also, it...More
