Cane River Suspension Footbridge 8

Street View 


This set of eight suspension footbridges can be found along a seven and a half mile stretch of Yancy County's Cane River. All visible from the road paralleling the river, the first six are visible from US 19W and the final two on Hunting Dale Rd - less than a half mile off US 19W. For the most part, these suspension footbridges appear like the sidewalk outside a typical residence in that only one was posted with a "No Tresspasing" sign while another had "Walk At Your Risk" sign.

The map associated with this listing shows the location of the first one. The remaining seven are as one would work their way downstream on the Cane River in a predominately northeastern direction. Coordinates for all eight are below.
