Oddly enough, on the satellite image that's currently showing, it looks like maybe someone did try approaching from the north?

As far as I know it is, although I haven't visited since 2005. https://historicbridges.org/bridges/browser/?bridgebrowser=t...

9/27/09 Bruce Hwy only sort-of exists. It's not posted as private property, but it isn't navigable in my car, from either end. I wasn't in the mood to get out & hike, so I can't confirm whether it's still there or not.
