The wife and I stopped here on our Honeymoon trip Oct of 2016. The fall colors were beautiful and the craftsmanship and structure of the bridge were wonderful. We took lots of photos. I don't care for heights, so to stand in the middle of...More

When my traveling partner said we had to stop and see a bridge, I was like "really?" We had crossed the Mackinac Bridge and that was impressive, how could a significantly smaller bridge be a big deal? Well, it is! Driving over the bridge you...More

This is an incredible place! We stopped on Monday thanks to a tip from one of the workers at the Visitor's Center. Trees are in full color and it is a breath taking from the top as it is from the bottom looking up!
