This is the first big bridge you come too when you go towards Big Sur from the North. Built in 1932 it remains an architectural feature of the highway and is very photogenic. 2065

Pulled off here during a road trip and it was worth it, beautiful views! The bridge looks nice but the views when standing with your back to the bridge are definitely worth the stop!

Dont get this bridge confused with the Bixby Bridge. Still a very impressive bridge with spectacular views of the California coast line!!

The Rocky Creek Bridge was built the same year as the Bixby Bridge by a group of 1932 engineers with limited equipment and resources.

I would consider this bridge the little 'brother' of Brixby Creek bridge. They both look very similar, except the scenery at Brixby is more dramatic and beautiful. If you have less time, you can skip this and go to Brixby instead.

With the Pacific coastline as its stage, this bridge looks equally magnificent alongside its Highway One counterparts. Effectively, you might as well pull over whenever you see it - it makes for a good photograph every time.

Rocky Creek Bridge is on the Pacific Coast Highway, a distance away from the Bixby Bridge. The construction work of the bridge was completed in 1932. Salute to Engineers who had built this bridge. Tourists stop here to enjoy the scenic beauty of the coastline....More
