  1. Way to many cars on the trail from Ritchie road to shogomoc. People should park and walk the trail as there are houses, animals, and children close to the road and it’s causing concern in the community. There are also Potholes in road and speed on the road is outrageous. It’s also sad to see the garbage down the sides of the road to the bridge and people are using the bathroom in the woods. The beauty of This area is going to be destroyed if we don’t address and fix the issues. May I suggest to gate off the trail to vehicles. Also, may I suggest an outhouse be placed at shogomoc.

  2. is this a hard trial for someone that has bad kness and has trouble walking?

  3. No. You can drive right to it. There is a slight grade from the road up to the bridge.

  4. its so much fun to swim there too you can walk right out to where the old bridge was and climb on to the side of the bridge and jump off on the left side its 70 ft deeop

  5. I was up there visiting in September and locals took me to this bridge. I was so disgusted on the road that we drove to get to the access to the bridge. There was a sink hole there in the road that actually scared me. There was a pylon around it but that was all. The road was so narrow and two cars could not pass each other. I couldn’t believe that a bridge that was so lovely didn’t have proper access to view it.

    I will be sending off my comments to Tourism as well. I was completely disappointed and I can’t believe the people in that area haven’t done something to have this area properly fixed up for tourists to go to this beautiful area and enjoy the bridge that I’m thinking cost thousands and thousands of dollars to build.

    Shame on whatever level of government for allowing this!
