Great historical bridge to visit in the beautiful Honey Run canyon. Pedestrians and bikes can go onto the bridge, which is no longer in use. In the Summer many locals swim and picnic in the river up and down stream. Very quiet area to visit during the week and winter. This area has a rich gold history. The road just beyond the bridge leads up to the city of Paradise where a 54 pound nugget of gold was discovered.
If you are near here - stop and check it out. Google it...and learn about its history.
