Tried to get to the bridge today but the road down to it is now gated with a sign saying road closed - it looked like a permanent feature with concreted in gate posts, big locks.....

Prior to the bridge shown here over Hakalau Stream, there was a covered bridge built around 1898.

The photo below, that might be from the 1920's, is of Hakalau Valley which includes Hakalau Stream with the covered bridge crossing the stream. This can be seen on the left side of the photo.

On the right of the photo, one can also see the old Hakalau Planatation Co. camp housing that sits just off the main highway, now called Old Mamalahoa Hwy. This old highway now stops at the bottom just this Bridgehunter photo sits. It used to climb up out of the valley on the right side.
