Cool bridge to see and walk across. Near Balboa Park. Bridge is over some nature trails and small gorge. Somewhat bouncy.

I ran there early morning. Neighborhood looked nice, no signs of anything unpleasant and the area of the bridge and around was clean. Bridge is fun, great construction and it is a bit odd, when I ran over it, it bounced up and down! But...More

I made a point of visiting this bridge while on a walking trip through the Hillcrest neighbourhood as it's not too far from there. Crossing this bridge was a thrill. It wobbles and sways as others walk along it. The guard wires do not leave...More

It was good to walk on the wooden bridge and see the beautiful green view . It's old and worth to see how was the bridge before
