Visitors have the choice of seeing the bridge from the overlook or walking down into the canyon to see it from below. I have a recording of our walk. The recording has two branches. The right branch takes you to the overlook which is flat and I believe, paved. The left branch will take you down into the canyon. First you walk down some steps and it starts out steep, then it levels out when you walk around this huge mushroom looking boulder (that's the boulder you stand on top for the overlook), then the trail will take a switch back and go down a steep decline. We did not go any further as since it was winter, the trail was a bit slippery and icy. From this switchback where you are bascially standing under the overlook, we took another photo from this lower vantage point. See my recording for photos.

(*This trail is actually marked to short on this map, the bridge is twice as far as shown on here, so don't believe the distance or the elevation #'s You have to hike down to where the trail crosses the streams, that's where the Bridge is). Another cool trail, very steep, In the sun all day, gets VERY hot, also has a ladder or two, stairs, not for the out of shapers!
