    Fun side activity when in the area
    We ended up in historic old Hanapepe while waiting for a restaurant to open for dinner. In the meantime, we wandered and found the old bridge. It is a one directional bridge, so you need to wait while people choose to go one direction or the other. Also, no more than 15 people on it at a time, although it bounced plenty with just 4 or so of us on it.

    Cute little town with a cool bridge.
    Cute little town with cool bridge. We stopped here on the way to another destination. I would not go out of my way to see this, but if you're close by check it out. There are some stores to walk around in and we had a great Hawaiian treat from the shop right in front of the bridge. Worth the 30 minute stop.

    Was a cool bridge to look at, but felt unsafe to walk on at some parts as the planks were loose. Nothing specifically bad about it, but nothing special either. If you're passing definitely take a look, but not worth making a special trip for

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Bridge is permanently locked as it's about to fall in the river. Don't know when they closed it but I would avoid Hanapepe altogether.

It is not worth making a special trip to Hanapepe to see the swinging bridge, but if you are in Hanapepe for the Friday Art Night then it is worth walking across it. It seems to be included in a lot of YouTube videos about Kauai and the experience doesn't match up with the hype.

Was worth the quick stop in Hanapepe to walk across this swinging bridge. Spent an hour walking around the cute shops in Hanapepe, the home of Lilo and Stitch.

It’s cute. If you’re in the town of Hanapepe, definitely visit. Wouldn’t recommend going out of your way for it, however. Could be scary for those with fear of heights, or vertigo. Otherwise, a mild activity.

Cool experience that we just stumbled upon. If you happen to be close then this is a fun stop. They indicate a maximum of 15 people, but we were fortunate not many people were around.

We’d read this wasn’t worth the trip….so true. We didn’t make a special trip to see this we were actually passing thru Hanapepe so we stopped to see the bridge. But do not make a special trip for this.
