  • Just a cool place to check out. There a a also an awesome swimming hole under the bridge. You could camp there too.
  • Awesome to see, thrilling to jump off of! Just make sure the water is deep enough!
  • Peaceful and beautiful. Wonderful afternoon
  • Absolutely one of the most beautiful places if you love the outdoors. I suggest you walk the bridge before driving across. The view is amazing and the water was clear enough I could see the fish and turtles swimming under water. Right past the second bridge there is a sand beach. Pack a picnic because you will want to stay and take it in. Locals said the fishing was really good too!
  • Beautiful! The bridge was scary but amazing! Perfect place to get away!
