This structure employs the National Park Service's "rustic style;" the rugged stone veneer conceals its filled reinforced concrete arch construction. This naturalistic treatment allows the bridge to blend into its scenic setting below the Puyallup Glacier and upstream from Denman Falls. Of special interest are several landscape features associated with the bridge, including stone steps leading down from the bridge to the creek and a hiking trail to the nearby waterfall; this trail was constructed by workers from the Emergency Conservation Works project. Another trail from the bridge leads to the nearby historic St. Andrews Creek Ranger Station.
