North Fork Salt Creek Bridge

This is the North Fork of Salt Creek, the same stream that flows under the covered bridge at the state park and goes under SR46 next to the Nashville Dairy Queen and under Bond Cemetery Iron Bridge and Green Valley Bridge. Jackson Creek is a small stream that is the source of Yellowwood Lake flowing due south out of the lake and emptying in to the N.FK. Salt Creek aprox. 1 mile north of this bridge on SR46.

I do see where there is a nearby Jackson Creek Road, but every map I have ever looked at refers to this as the North Fork of Salt Creek.

There used to be a sign just before you crossed the steel bridge saying this is Jackson Creek
