I went and saw this bridge in March 2019. The road off the highway was pretty muddy so I parked my car and walked the 1.5 miles to the bridge. It was well worth it. Beautiful setting. Unfortunately there is a huge power line just north that made it hard to take pictures. Deck is bad, I walked across but wouldn’t recommend it. The Green River was shallow here, maybe 2 feet deep, but I’m sure it floods way out in this spot.
