Clover Creek Bridge
The Clover Creek Bridge was an important link of the Generals Highway allowing for construction to continue to the General Grant Tree, creating a continuous loop connecting Sequoia National Park with General Grant National Park in 1935. The concrete arch bridge with masonry facade is a good surviving example of National Park Service rustic aesthetic.
