We followed the signs in the park that said "to the bridge" and walked the long hike through beautiful trees and ferns. It was not well marked and we were a bit off the trail at times. You go downhill for a long time (can...More

It's a nice park. Don't get me wrong, but it's not one of my favorites park. Nothing "dramatic" in my opinion. The view from the bridge is nice on a sunny day.

A perfect spot for an afternoon outing. We drove north from Coupeville and found parking within the park. It was very busy on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Please remember to purchase your $10 Discovery Pass. We accessed several parks utilizing the one pass for the...More

I have traveled here before but only when the weather was sunny. I assumed this would be equally amazing in the rain and it was! The fog misted over the bridge and you could see the fast moving water down below. It looked like a...More

Be sure to bring your Discovery Pass for the parking lot. Walk out to the middle of the bridge for incredible photo ops. Be sure to use the safety stairs below the bridge to cross to other side. Views are completely different and worth the...More
