  • We followed the directions of the EZ66 book to discover this bridge. We got the side located in Illinois. Nice parking available and the site is really well maintained. The bridge is beautiful and gives a view of the Mississippi River. Feel free to do as we and go for a walk on it!

  • A fun place for walk or bike ride too bad they closed the Saint Louis side. So in order to park your car the only convenient and safe option is crossing over to the IL side then crossing back over the island.
  • What a nice place for a walk across the Mississippi River! This bridge was part of old Route 66 from 1930 to 1965. Plenty of photo ops! Signs tell the history. 1 mile one way across bridge. No restrooms on the Illinois side but there was a port-a-potty on the Missouri side at the time of this review. Port-a-potty was handicap approved. Park on the Illinois side as the Missouri side is closed to parking. Lots of trails to hike which is mostly flat so it's easy.
  • Off the beaten path fun. Dont just walk next to the Mississippi walk over it and enjoy route 66. Please note must be entered from Illinois side unless on bike or foot.
  • Where Route 66 crossed the Mississippi River. The bridge has been beautifully preserved as a car-free park. It's about a mile to cross it.
  • We often ride the Riverbend trails from Missouri through to Madison, Venice, Granite City and to the Arch. Great sights walking or riding across the Chain of Rocks bridge.
