We went to the Stone Arch Arts & Music Festival and that is how we got to the bridge. I liked the view, a lot, and the way you can see the waters running. A beautiful walk.

Nice area to take leisurely walk. Parking is available close by on either side of bridge. Lots of area to stop and take some really cool pictures.
