It is on our "to do" list whenever we have company new to the area. You've got to walk across this bridge at least once in your life. Put it on your "bucket list."

Lunch at Taco Tree, a walk across the tallest bridge in California and then ice cream at Fosters Freeze. The bridge is amazing and the views are spectacular. What a great day!

I enjoyed visiting Forest Hill. Small town feel. They have a great funky gift shop with a super friendly owner. I had lunch at the little cafe that was good.

This is the highest bridge in California and also a place where several movies were shot. You can see both ways over the Canyon and for miles. There is a small place to park so you can walk out over the bridge and take photos.

I believe the name of the place I used to stay with the Forest Hill Lodge. I absolutely love that place but the last time I was there they said they were only open for weddings. So I'm not sure if they're open to the public... More
