Bing maps shows it as Jackson Pond Road, and the Bing imagery has less dense foliage.

Pin was in a weird spot; I moved it to the correct location. The road doesn't show up on Google Maps but does show up on topo maps prior to the 1980s. It does look like the bridge is still there if you really look closely at the satellite imagery.
