This is a photogenic bridge, and it's worth seeing and finding a good angle on a sunny day. Not a destination in itself, but an attraction.

A must-see 5-span stone bridge that crosses the Mississippi River. Interesting architecture and engineering design. The immediate area is suitable for picnic lunch.

You will be very satisfied just to drive over the bridge. It's quite interesting to see the engineering of the bridge.

This 100+ year-old stone bridge is the subject of many paintings. Beneath its arches is a rich fossil bed from 450 million years past. That plus waterfalls and rapids, makes this site a splendid summer visit site.

Beautiful bridge, man made over 100yrs old. Photographers attraction. Walk on the rocks, fish or just lounge in the summer.

A nice place to take pictures and relax by a beautiful river. The bridge is just at the entrance to Packenham. Excellent for an outdoor picnic.

This is a very picturesque bridge and worth the trip just to see it. Drive slowly though as it barely is wide enough for two cars to pass. Trucks treat it as a one way bridge.
