Sycamore Creek Bridge
Posted February 12, 2007, by Tom S. (thomass [at] nc [dot] rr [dot] com)

This bridge is in the middle of William B. Umstead State Park in the east side of Raleigh NC. I walked about 2 miles to get these pictures. I entered the park from the south, Reedy Creek entrance, but I could have parked near Sycamore Lake from the north enterence and had about the same walk. If I had a bike or a horse, I could have rode to the bridge. This bridge is open to foot, bike and horse traffic. NC1647 is called Graylyn Trail in the park and is a dirt road. Two other trail will take you to this bridge, Company Mill Spur Trail and Sycamore Trail.
