Super cute place for photos. Not much parking though. It wasn't too busy, but there was another photographer there. Lots of options on the bridge, under the bridge by the water, cool grafitti building in the background and great fall colors.

Very interesting workmanship!
Great views over the Guadalupe River. One of the first bridges built. Now it’s used to walk and there are benches so you can sit and watch the river!

Beautiful scenery, pretty river, interesting history of the bridge. Very peaceful. A must see when in the area. There are benches on the bridge to sit and watch the ducks and the fisherman.

A nice walking bridge over the river with a nice view but nothing to go out of your way for. It is a bridge with nothing on either side to see.

The bridge itself is a gem, not so hidden. I'm almost hesitant to write this up because it's a special place UNDER the bridge. You can take kayaks, floats, your coolers, beach chairs, fishing gear. Just go under the bridge and to the left is a gigantic open area to set up camp for the day. We were there to fly fish and enjoy the nice cool, running and clear as can be water. Next time we'll bring a cooler/beverages/umbrella and hang for several hours. Get here before noon on a week day before the small parking lot fills.

The river is so beautiful, and this is a great way to get a close up view. The bridge is quaint, and area around it quiet. We enjoyed our walk across and back, and spent a few minutes relaxing on one of the benches placed in the center.

This is a very cool piece of Texas history to see. It's so peaceful to hear the Guadalupe River flowing from below. This bridge is an amazing work of art!

Do yourself a favor and walk this bridge. Just sit and listen to the river, and if you are lucky, watch the train go by on the near railroad tracks.

These old truss bridges were critical in creating an economically attractive way to traverse the rivers and streams of early Texas small (as well as many large cities) towns. Many towns had to build (and FREQUENTLY re-build the wood and stone bridges) of early Texas because of the flash flooding that is still so common in Texas. The thin soil does not hold the rain water!

These iron and/or steel bridges are simple trusses that were inexpensively manufactured in many American cities and shipped in pieces to Texas towns on trains. They were taken by horse drawn wagons to the river site were very solid abutments were hand constructed to withstand any flood. They were then bolted together and decked with local lumber. The bridge was finished in record time and the serious problem permenttly (for the most part) was solved.

These bridges used to be all over Texas, but (sadly) they have been replaced with modern bridges lacking the charm of these structures. This one is not the best (from an artistic standpoint) one you can find, but it is good to see it preserved. Each seems to have a unique design or "different" feature, but they all worked! Many are still in use on major highways and railways throughout Texas. They are a real tribute to American engineering and ingenuity as well as to the frontier spirit of the country. Some enterprising people are securing the old ones and selling them. As is true here, many cities have repurposed them. They truly will last a lifetime!
