Birch Creek Bridge
Posted July 1, 2011, by Mike Spivey (lefturn99 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I found this bridge. It was blocked by a gate and posted. I went to the dam area to use the bathroom. There was a young lady there and I asked her about the bridge. She said she was a relative of the owner and it was ok to cross the fence. We got some great shots but there were ticks everywhere, so we didn't stay long. The lady did say vandals set fire to the deck last year.
