  • Great views from a really cool structure. The bridge is a great piece to have in Golden. It's also a great place to shoot photos!
  • This wooden bridge itself is a work of art, and has a beautiful little area with flowers and archways. It's most gorgeous at night though I feel, with the bridge gently light up. The view over the river is very pretty, especially at sunset/sunrise.
  • I thought it would be more spectacular. You can have a nice walk next to the river.
  • Love this bridge and surrounding area. An excellent focal point for the town.
  • Very cool bridge, nice shady break on a hot day!
