Tourist stop at either end of the bridge and walk out to take in the spectacular view. Bolder visitors will hike down below the bridge for rare photo ops. But the very brave will enter the pass in kayaks for a true adventure. This is for skilled kayakers with years of training, not just paddling, but hard work with real coaches. If you've got the training and skills this place will be a fun place to play. If you don't you could die. Access is from the parks at either end of the bridge.

We go on an annual camping trip with friends to this location and no matter what the weather does, we have a great time exploring the park.

It's an amazing place and sunrises or sunsets so beautiful on the right day. Also the boat tours in the summer are great.

Walked over the bridge actually they are two bridges. Was a little scary with the wind but good hand rails and traffic goes by reasonably slowly as the enjoy the view too.

Remember you will need to pay for parking.

Enjoy the views!
