Cricket Creek Valley Bridge
Posted April 4, 2010, by Trent Dowler (tdowler [at] grnco [dot] net)

This bridge is not hard to find, but here's the GPS coordinates for this bridge since they were not listed on the bridges page. 3627'41" N, 9313'10"W

Access below the bridge(s) is easily obtained by turning onto the road just before crossing the bridge if you're in the south-bound lane. My mapping software has it named as Pine Crest Rd.

Sorry, no additional pics taken on this trip.
