The Rainbow Bridge in Fort Morgan is a great example of what could be done architecturally to make your road trips that much more enjoyable. This bridge was built as a part of a side road diversion off of the Lincoln Highway for a trip through Northeastern Colorado. This side road adventure was soon no longer supported by the automobile... More

I was born and raised in Fort Morgan, Colorado, and haven't been back in many years. So it was a nice surprise to see that they renovated Rainbow Bridge so you can actually take a walk on it over the Platte River.

Take a nice walk along the South Platte and enjoy the Rainbow Bridge. Built in 1922, the original road and bridge still stand in Ft Morgan as a stellar example of a rainbow arch bridge.

The Rainbow Bridge was built as the bridge over the South Platte. A secondary, more utilitarian bridge was built just to the west of the Rainbow Bridge. As the Rainbow Bridge aged, it was decided to change it into a walking bridge. This bridge is near Riverside Park which has the community pool, softball fields, RV parking, a playground, a... More

Rainbow bridge is a uniquely engineered bridge, but over 85 years ago. The bridge served the area for many years as a major crossing of the South Platte River. Then later as two lanes as a second bridge was constructed. The Rainbow bridge survived floods which took out the newer bridge. It is now a bridge for walkers, runners and... More

Drove over it to and from Quail Dunes Golf Course. While it's shape is supposed to look like a rainbow, the bridge is made of concrete and is not what I would consider coming to Fort Morgan to see.

I've read the reviews on this, and I'm sorry, but this is not worth the stop in my opinion. We drove past it, parked on the north side, and decided the views were not worth the walk. We were there in the afternoon, however, so I can only imagine that the view is much better at night. All I can... More

Well worth the short drive from Denver to see this. To truly experience the grandeur of this bridge you have to walk across it and back, Sunset of sunrise are the best times. There is a nice park on one side of the park to enjoy as well. With the S. Platte running high this year it is even better.

Beautiful place to take a walk or just relax and enjoy the view. The history behind it just adds to it. If you drive across you don't get the same feeling as walking.
