Would like to know if the tiny suspension bridge near the Inn has a name. We walked across it last year and are attempting to locate the exact bridge! Many thanks. Patricia

I don't think the bridge has an actual name, but Bruce is right--it crosses the Shenandoah River not many yards south of the inn in an area called Chapman's Landing (for the boat landing) and Narrow Passage (for the colonial roadbed on the Valley Pike). It's on Rt. 672, just off Rt. 11, two miles south of Woodstock. People who live across the river near the mountain normally cross on a low water bridge. When the river floods and that bridge is under water, they use the suspension bridge to get home--or to work! The suspension bridge used to be about 20 feet above the water, but we had a flood in 1996 that took the bridge down. The new one in it's place is about 24 feet high. There is a picture of it on the Inn at Narrow Passage website. I think there are five 'swinging bridges' in the county.
