totally ruined

this bridge is totally wrecked by graffiti. You lose all sense of history when you step anywhere close to it.

Older bridge and very well preserved, I love it. It hurts people writing in the woods. The river is very small with fresh and clear water.

This bridge is so unique and provides many photo opportunities. However, it has been vandalized with graffiti for a number of years. It is so sad to see it in this state. I believe it is still worth a visit. If you can see past the graffiti you will see a unique structure that you don't get to see every... More

We were so saddened by the graffiti left on this beautiful piece of history. There should be more done to highlight this area.

We knew ahead of time that this bridge was vandalized. It didn't really set in until we went there. This place is beautiful and I hate so much that its been damaged over the years by vandals. I don't even know if it would be possible to restore it and keep it that way. You can tell it's stood the... More

Once we finally arrived, we were shocked at the amount of graffiti on the bridge. What was worse, there was a family looking for their signage from a previous visit. Although I'm sure it was pristine at one time, I'm also sure it was magnificent in its original state. Lovely brook ran underneath it.

Yes, the graffiti was shameful and distracting, but I still enjoyed visiting the bridge. It was magnificent, and the smell of aged wood was heaven to my senses. I also got to log a. Geocache near the bridge.

I was very disappointed that this landmark has been vandalized with graffiti so badly. It was still worth the short drive out to see it. The stream is very peaceful. The entire inside is covered with graffiti, so I could only get good pictures of the outside.

As others have mentioned, the entire inside of the bridge is covered in graffiti. The outside is mostly clean and good for pictures.

This is.... Rather was a beautiful bridge that has been disfigured by graffiti. The camera surveillance apparently went up way too late. There is an historical marker which tells the bridge history. Stepping inside you sense the age of the wood and notice the handmade nails in the floor boards. If you can stop being so distracted by the graffiti... More
