Make sure that you stop off the highway and see the view below this bridge. Just driving over it, does not do justice!

It is one of the last wooden bridges that are still standing. When we were vactioning a coupleof years ago, they were adding some supports to it, but they did want to lose the old charm that it has.

I traverse this bridge several times each week, and the view out to sea still stuns me. It's the last redwood bridge of its kind on the Pacific Coast, and as such is in the process of getting a monument designation. Yes, it's narrow, and...More

This is a great spot to stop and explore. The Albion River opens into the sea here, below this historic bridge. A visit to the Albion River Inn for lunch or dinner is worth making this a destination.

Views when you are eating at Albion Inn is nice. You can drive down to the inlet and see it from the bottom which we did. There is camping, but recent storms may have temporarily stopped that.

Keep up the good work! Park was closed following recent storm. We have camped here before and took a walk along the river. A beautiful spot on the river for RV's, camping, fishing and kayaks.

If you choose to eat at the Albion River Inn restaurant you won't be disappointed. The view is spectacular and the bridge is part of it. Bring your camera!

This is a really cool bridge. You can't appreciate it if you just drive over it :), but if you look from the side or from below, you will see it for all it's worth. The river, bay, and ocean under and around it are...More
