A distinctive feature of this Trail section is its steel bridges. They are engineered to provide safe, stable places to travel. They’re also designed to minimize the visual and physical disruption of the natural environment. Each bridge is built differently and has a different sound when you cross it. The sound it makes depends on its length, structure, and building materials.

Challenge Yourself!

  • Test your knowledge

  • Question 1

    How long is the bridge?

  • You did great!

Think about it…

How high off the ground do you think you are?

Guess how long it will take you to walk the bridge. Were you close to your estimate?
