Dog Creek Bridge
Posted October 18, 2020, by Neil Krout (kickinpony [dot] 66 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Do not attempt to drive up the road after it rains; the road is dirt and turns to mud, with many washouts. The only approach is from the South. I had to use 4x4, even though it was dry. Also, there is a major washout about 1/4 mile South of the bridge.
