While researching off the beaten path things to do in Asheville, I came across this bridge and knew I had to see it!!! The history of the bridge fascinates me...but the bridge itself is so cute and quaint looking. Also in the right moment, it...More

It is a little off the beaten path. There is not many places to park given it is over an actively used road. Aside from knowing a little about the history there is no way I would know what I was looking at when I...More
