Loved visiting the Rusk Footbridge! Beautuful bridge surrounded by beautiful shady trees and well groomed area! Have been here twice. Sweet photo spot.

We were in Rusk for the Texas State Railroad but figured we'd look for another cheap attraction. The footbridge is pretty neat, really long and tucked under some beautiful trees. We spent about 20 minutes there and took some photos. Cute place to visit!

This is a very long walking footbridge. It's got history, plus is a very nice setting for taking pictures. Highly recommend for visitors to see this neat part of history of our little town.

Directions provided by TripAdvisor were slightly off. I'm glad we made the stop. It's very innocuous, nothing flashy, good for picnic.

Having lived here all my life, I've walked the Footbridge many times. As a child and part of my father's cub scout group (I being his daughter, I was the mascot), we helped fix it. It's been fixed over the years, has a lot of...More
