An Amazing Railroad Site.
Aug 2021
If you are a train buff, this is a must see place. You can overlook the highest railroad bridge over a navigable river in the United States. We were there for an hour, and saw five trains cross this bridge. It is an engineering marvel that is jaw dropping!

Sight to see

My family was in the area for a college visit. We heard about the bridge from someone at the college. It was just a few miles down the road.

It was well worth the drive down the back roads. BEAUTIFUL country. The blind hairpin turn just before the park was cool too!

We were fortunate enough to have a large freight train cross the bridge as we were looking at it.

Imagining back to those early days of the bridge.. it was, and is, an engineering feat.

There is not much there, an old paddle wheel boat, an old restored caboose, and an overlook. It is something to see.

Don't plan to be entertained. But let your imagination take you back as you look down on the river and at the bridge.

Great "off the beaten path" attraction
Mar 2021
I stopped by here on a recent road trip to Shaker Village. Located about 8 minutes drive outside of Wilmore, it's definitely worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood. The park itself is fairly basic, which some playground equipment for the kids, and what appears to be a little dance pavillian.

The star attraction here is definitely the engineering marvel that is "High Bridge". The park offers a few great places to view the bridge, including a purpose-built deck that extends out beyond the trees. Fair warning on that one though if you're afraid of heights, the floor is a metal grill that enables you to see quite a ways down below you.

Great View of Tremendous Engineering Feat
Oct 2019
This small park offers a great view of the High Bridge. While we were at the park there was a music event taking place, but it by no means took away from the visit. We enjoyed hearing the live music while checking out this impressive bridge. While we were there, we saw a tour boat on the Kentucky River below

Beautiful overlook of the Kentucky River and the high railroad bridge! It was so quiet and the buzzards gave USA flying show over the bridge!

Beautiful view and only 5 miles from our B&B at Scott Station Inn. Picnic table with shelter. Good place for picnic.

Nice park

A small, out-of-the-way park with gorgeous views of the river and railroad bridge. The road to the park was scenic, but winding, so be careful getting there. We didn't stay long since it was late evening when we went, but worth the short trip from Wilmore.

Winding Road but worth it

This is a little out of the way but we enjoyed seeing the bridge and the pavilion and reading about it's history. There is a walk way so you can get out over the river and see the bridge very well.

A beautiful little park with great views over the river

My family and I lived in Wilmore, near to High Bridge Park, for several years while I was pursuing studies in the area. We used to go occasionally over to High Bridge Park, and we try and go back anytime we're back in the area. It really is quite beautiful, and a nice place for a picnic and photos.

Great View!

Hadn't been to High Bridge in 20 years... since I graduated. They've built a park and overlook. Definitely worth a SUNSET trip to see!
