“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is a beautiful little park. Unfortunately for us it was evening and rainy but that didn't detract from the beauty of the bridge. Check out the attached photo of the sign telling you about the LOVE of the bridge and how it was built. The second photo shows the LOVE. The only thing that could have been better was if there was less foliage covering the bridge. Well worth the time to stop.

“Very Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

It was very interesting althought it was raining when we arrived at the bridge. If you time it right the train goes by the bridge & goes slow enough to snap a nice picture.

“Walk across into the Past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

This gorgeous bridge is over a crystal clear river ..Best place for a picnic or skipping rocks..I was sorry to see the locals have written graffiti on the inside of the bridge..but it doesn't hurt the the beauty of the bridge.

“A scenic spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

A pleasant place to stop on the way by, including good picnic facilities. The bridge is historic and interesting, and the setting is (mostly) idyllic. Autumn leaves make it a particularly nice scene. The bridge itself, though, is COVERED in graffiti. While literally harmless, it substantially detracts from the bridge. Unless you're a photographer, this is a pretty brief stop unless you make a meal time of it.
