As a family we love to go here and walk the trails as well as view the beautiful Bridge. It is said to be haunted however we have never seen anything except beauty all around. If you have never been and love history it is definitely worth the drive.

I will drive miles for a historical site and it doesn't get much older than this. Beautiful gothic arch set in a massive stone bridge that use to be on the route to Asheville.

Careful, or you will drive right past it! The architecture was fascinating, almost Roman. Hard to imagine that it was on a road that went to Greenville.

I know you see pictures for this bridge but you must come see in person. It really is amazing. If you want to go down to the river level, some areas are steep so be careful. A lot of people were taking pictures there. Very photogenic spot.

Nice drive from Greenville. Wasn't sure what to expect, but so happy we drove out! Interesting bridge and nice place to take some pictures! We were the only people there for a while and it was very peaceful and relaxing.

I drove here in about 45 minutes. It was super easy to find as long as you look for a black 4 foot metal fence - parking is on the opposite side of the road (just a dirt round about drive with enough for parking on both sides). The fall colors and evening light provided for fantastic photos. Very quiet... More

You have to visit this bridge which was used on the trail between Asheville and Greenville. It is a local favorite for special occasion pictures. Definitely worth a visit.

I have been to the Poinsett Bridge many times. I have heard stories of it being a site of ghostly happenings. Very interesting site built in the early 1800's and the road was used by travelers from Charleston to Asheville.

Very picturesque spot....beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Great spot to see both nature and enjoy a little history of the area. Highly recommend seeing.....it won't take a long amount of your time but well worth the effort.
