Very interesting old bridge - supposedly the oldest suspension bridge still operating in Texas. Very nice scenic views from on the bridge. Well worth the drive.

I have always loved bridges. This one was especially exciting. It was late evening and very dark, except for the full moon. We discovered our vehicle was over the weight limit so we were not able to drive across. We walked across and you could...More

We stopped by just to 'see' and were not disappointed! This is a cool experience and amazing to feel the bridge gently sway under your feet. Great history - wished there was a historical marker here with more info.

Way past the nearest taco stand or public restroom or pecan grove sits a majestic single-lane suspension bridge soaring high above the Colorado River. It's a place you have to seek out to enjoy, but once there, it's incredibly quiet and special. Private property is...More

We drove west of Goldthwaite to the Regency Bridge. We were not sure we were on the right road since it is basically a gravel county road and there is limited signage. Once you find the bridge there is limited parking on the road on...More

Anyone who appreciates history will appreciate a trip to the Regency Bridge. Remote and off the beaten path, but worth the trip.

It is worth the hunt because of the history. It was raining hard when we went so I want to go back when the weather is better.

Not really much room to park on the south side. Little pull off area on North side, about big enough for 2 cars. "Park and walk to the bridge" is misleading as you park in wide spot on the road right at the end of the... More

It does look like a long drop but I think it's about 30-40'. Picture a 3 story building between the water and the bridge bottom. Looking at the steep slope of the bank to the water makes it look like more. Now you're... More
