Mariposa Equestrian Bridge.

Built by Army Corps of Engineers for equestrian access to Griffith Park trails, when flood control channel was constructed.

FYI There was also a covered equestrian bridge down river of this location, in the Equestrian Center area. It straddled Burbank & Los Angeles. I was told that the City of LA removed because it was hazardous, and neither City wanted to spend $$$ to fix. Would love to see a photo of that.
