thanks Clark, makes way more sense for the existence of this bridge - camped in park that night, woke to several truckloads of hunters and their dogs out early for uuh...whatever hunting season this is, not a hunter...

Love to know the back story on this old thing....couldnt have been built just for the little loop in this county park? Guessing it pre-dates and was on an alignment of some extinct county road....
