Alum Cave trail ????

I have a question about this trail. We are not interested in hiking it this time, but I thought I read somewhere that this trail passes over a pretty nice bridge right at the trailhead. Is this right?

I was thinking it might be a nice stop for a fall picture and to look at the rushing river from above. If it is not this trail, does anyone know of a place like this that has easy access and good river view?

Alum Cave crosses the creek at many places in the beginning. It is a wonderful creek to walk along. Another suggestion is to hike the begining of the Chimney Tops trail and you will find a number of good photo spots there as well along the very same creek, but lower down obviously.

Yes, there is a nice narrow bridge shortly after you leave the trailhead.

My favorite part of this trail is the arch rock.
