We used the park as a starting point for a bike ride. The bridge is quite rustic, yet beautiful with the cascading waterfall. Be careful if you ride your bike across the wooden planks, as it is not suited for thin bicycle tires. The park...More

Only had a short time to visit, but didn't want to miss seeing this piece of history. The park would be a great place to spend an afternoon with friends and/or family. Bridge itself is well maintained, and drivers politely take turns driving through from...More

We spent a couple of hours here on Labor Day and really enjoyed our visit. Beautiful setting and lots to explore. We are going back next month when the leaves are changing to take family pictures.

Loved this stop! A wonderful old bridge and a nice walk in the woods. Be sure to pay the minimal parking fee.

I don't know for sure, but I would assume they WILL NOT have kitchen utensils supplied in the cabins. If I were you, I would purchase disposable cutlery, plates, etc. when you stop in Athens.

Yes, it's safe to drive thru. Put your windows down as the smell is unique to an old wooden bridge. Then park your car and walk thru, stopping to enjoy the view of the river from the window at mid-bridge.
