This bridge span is beautiful to watch and also an interesting drive. The view of the river is massive and intimidating. You can catch the fall colors as well as the misty swells. Give it a go!

The Bridge of the Gods is amazing. We thought about walking a crossed it but changed our minds when we saw how narrow it was. The view of the river was great. It is defiantly something to see.

this is an old, old bridge that is a historical artifact in and of itself. Drive slowly from either Washington state to Oregon state-either direction--but watch for pedestrians! no sidewalks!

Want to add a little spice to your trip for $2, then cross over the river, enjoy the experience and the view. Well worth the effort.

Yes, but there are no sidewalks so you're walking with vehicle traffic. Also, the bridge isn't paved; it's that weird metal grating stuff. I wouldn't choose to walk over it if I had an alternative.
