Over a mile walk to get to the bridge from the parking. $4 to park your car. Nice level walk though. The bridge was so high! Nicely maintained bridge, just wish the foliage was prettier, but the views are great nonetheless!

The center piece of the park is a bridge that was constructed in the 1850s across the Appomattox. The original pedestals are still standing next to the present bridge. It is nicely kept park with available rangers to answer questions and assist. A great place...More
