Brief note: 

Written by J Randall Houp

Cement bridge reenforced with steel railroad rails on top slab. Native rock piers. On old highway up to Mount Magazine from Paris, Arkansas. Very bad,very rough road up to this bridge. We parked and walked the last mile up. Note: G.P.S. not exact. Hard to decipher exact location. A very short distance downstream, Cove Creek pours into Short Mountain Creek as does Gutter Rock Creek nearby.
