The bridge represents something of an engineering feat in a place where technology typically takes a back seat to nature. Walk over it to appreciate its springy quality. It lies near the head of the moderately challenging 6 km / 4 hour Galatea Creek Trail. See:
For pictures of another bridge of similar construction, see the “Star Mine Bridge” in Albums. For pictures taken during a hike of the Galatea Creek Trail, see “Hiking Galatea Creek Trail” also in Albums.
Mountain sheep activity is frequent in this area, as the sheep often descend to the highway to lick the salt from the roads. Keep an eye out for these animals, especially driving around curves, and under no circumstances should you approach them.
Always consult park wardens and take appropriate precautions.
