Board Camp Creek Bridge
Posted June 30, 2010, by Fredrick Garcia (fandsgarcia [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge at 5 p.m. on 29 June 2010. Little hard to find because the access road is posted NO TRESPASSING but there is no gate and the county road sign is on the opposite side of the main road (misleading). The bridge is no longer closed to traffic. All the timber has been replaced with treated beams and planks at least one year ago. There are no running boards. I have added a few updated photos to this posting.
