“Kinzel Springs Bridge is best Freebie in town!”
Review of Swinging Bridge

Swinging Bridge
Ranked #17 of 33 things to do in Townsend

Awesome bridge! Follow tips for directions to residential area off Cameron Road, or another option is to park directly across the road at Kinzel Spring Century 21 (on Lamar Alexander Parkway...and they have a lovely pond & waterfall in back). Only downside to the "direct" option is you must watch traffic carefully before crossing. Fun to walk across this cool bridge, and you may see tubers below.

Townsend, Tennessee has no less than two swinging bridges. The Dark Island one is easy to find being near town and the one you float under on most Little river tube floats. This one is not so easy to find. One end is on the private property of a retreat and the other end is on Hwy. 321 hidden mostly behind bushes. It is across the street from the Kinsel Springs realty office and their parking lot is the only safe place to park. The you take you chances crossing Hwy. 321 to get to it. Like all swinging bridges, it is fun to cross and finding it can be much like a scavenger hunt. If you are visiting Townsend, which I do frequently for the quiet solitude and fun river it offers, check out both.

Fun to walk across . Not much on the other side. Seems strong enough to walk over. The water is shallow ok for a few photos.

If you are a photographer take some time to visit this bridge in the early morning. The fog in the fall is most engaging.

Simply, a swinging bridge. A little difficult to find. Walk across and back, that's it. Got a couple nice photos. Peaceful setting over the river.
