Love the vendors and the views! We stopped along the way to Colorado. We saw a person on a kayak and it really puts it into perspective how far down the gorge is

Long bridge big hole little water. Yes it is something to see but nothing like the grand canyon. You walk along the bridge look down and see the water and take a few pictures. The best part is probably the vendors along the side of...More

It's worth the short drive for the spectacular view. If you're old enough, the vendors near the parking area will bring you back to the 1970s.

Pretty cool view of the gorge. It did get a little busy with all the tourists stopping and vendors set up along the road, but still worth a quick stop.

Yes you do not pay to view the bridge. I agree that I would have your dog on a leash because cars zoom by while you are walking on a narrow sidewalk.

I would suggest driving to the John Dunn bridge which is a few miles upstream and allows you to actually put your feet in the water without climbing down a trail. The drive is very bumpy, mostly gravel, but very beautiful.

No There is no cost of any kind unless you choose to buy something from some of the local vendors that set up portable booths near the bridge. Nice little rest stop on the West end which is where most of the photos are... More
