Please do not leave locks on the bridge. They are to heavy and the bridge is not structurally sound. Experiencing the bride is fun but do not ruin it for others by weighing it down with locks.

This bridge has been part of my life since age 13 (now 55). Family has had a nearby cabin for that long. Fun to take my granddaughter out and bounce around and throw rocks off of.

Came to this one after the dark island swinging bridge. This one is terrible location no parking in a not so nice neighborhood. Go to the dark island bridge instead they look the same.

We started our day in Townsend. After breakfast, we found the Swinging Bridge. It sit's back behind the Railroad Museum and on behind the wedding chappel. Although it crosses over to a private residence, anyone can walk out on it. There are lots of "Locks...More

We followed the directions that were on Trip Advisor and the directions were wrong. We walked to where the directions said the bed should be and it wasn't there. We were disappointed not to see it.

A great find for the kids and everyone. It really does swing. You can only have 4 people though on it at a time.
