Nice bridge out in the country! Great place to have a wedding in the fall or spring. You can google the bridge to see how people have decorated the bridge for their wedding. Popular spot for bike riders to stop at.

This isn't a very long stop but it's a gorgeous stop. The historical significance of this bridge, and the pictures and story of it are fascinating. This is like a step back in time. The views from the bridge are phenomenal. Don't miss this!

I took a friend here so she could see the bottom of the canyon and the covered bridge with the canyon behind is an excellent photo op.

A cool bridge built over the Sacramento River in butte creek canyon! Especially pretty in fall when the trees change color

Honey Run is beautiful! We go here to get out of the house and picnic! The kids play in the water and skip rocks. Take a walk across the covered bridge and explore the history!!

I took my kids and we were a bit underwhelmed. It’s nice and pretty and a neat historical bridge. If I lived in the area it’s probably a place I would frequent for quiet nature time. However, for just passing through it’s nice for a...More

My wife is on a mobility walker and the bridge walk was great, and if your looking at the bridge the ares to the right behind the bathroom was pretty easy access to the water.
