Long Description:
This footbridge along the 6.2 mile Siltstone Trail helps hikers get over what would otherwise be a deep and treacherous obstacle. Its construction must have been a huge job. Following the trail its about a mile from the nearest road. A road actually is nearby, but that would still entail bringing the building supplies down from the top of the ridge.

The bridge can be accessed from the Siltstone Trail trailhead at N 38º 05.131' W85º 46.074. Parking is available immediately across the street at the Visitor's Center. From there you'll have a hike of about 1.5 miles, including a fairly tough climb in elevation to the top of the ridge. If you'd like a little easier was to get there, from the Visitor's Center take Tom Wallace Road to the parking area just past Tom Wallace Lake. From there take the Tulip Tree Trail. This is flat, paved trail of about 0.25 miles. However, when you get to the end of this trail, turn right and follow the Siltstone Trail (marked with white diamonds) up the hill. You'll still have about another 0.5 mile to go.
