Description 

Originally at this location was an all wood trestle, indicated by the countless creosote poles that have been previously cut off at water level and sit underneath the current 1924 all steel bridge. This bridge sits approximately 150 feet just south of the Little Maumelle River Bridge #1. This whole area is full of beautiful cypress trees and is very swampy. Both bridges, #1 & #2 sit in the scenic Pinnacle Mountain State Park.
