I love visiting the Regency Suspension Bridge and taking pictures of the bridge and the Colorado River. The bridge is well hidden and peaceful. A must see visit for tourists and driving over the one vehicle bridge.

This was a fun drive and a great bucket list item for a Native Texan. the view was fantastic and the bridge is amazing. The age of the bridge and engineering was worth the trip.

Our family made a trip to see the Christmas lights in nearby San Saba (don't miss!) and finally saw the Regency Suspension Bridge featured on Texas Country Reporter. As others indicated, there was only one road sign but our phone's GPS took us right to it (Cricket briefly lost coverage/ATT did OK/Sprint had most bars). Roads were paved until last few miles. It had rained earlier that day. Unpaved portion was semi firm but slinging mud. Motorcyclists: consider recent rainfall before attempting. Bridge is a single lane but we found room to park on either side. Only traffic in 45 minutes was the Game Warden. If you are in the area, make a point to see this bridge. Check-out the history online, it is interesting. Weight limit; 8000 lb total, max 5000 per axel. Parents please hold onto your children ! There is NO child proof railing, just two cables strung as a barrier, and the bridge moves. Only negative is the trash. Area is littered with beer cans, water bottles, etc. So sad. We had two plastic bags and filled both to dispose of. I would encourage others to please be part of the solution: don't litter and consider packing some out.

First - let me tell you how to get there. There is literally ONE sign on Hwy. 16 going North that just says Regency Bridge. After going around the pea patch, we clocked it coming back so that we could tell others :) From downtown San Saba, where Hwy 190 and Hwy 16 intersect, take Hwy 16 North about 1.9 miles and you’ll see FM 500. Turn left on FM 500 and drive 15 miles to CR 137. Turn right on CR 137 and the bridge will be about 0.8 miles down the road. We both walked and drove the bridge and it’s absolutely beautiful over the Colorado. Old bridges are one of our favorite things to visit, and this was a perfect outing.
