Damaged Bridge cuts park short

Washed out bridge
The trail only goes 20 feet more to the left of where this photo was taken. Then the trail is blocked off and there is a collapsed bridge. If you cross the dry stream bed in another 50 feet you will come to this washed-out bridge.

I went to hike this trail and found that the suspension bridge was washed out.  The trail beyond was closed off and over grown. I never escaped the sound of autos crossing over the dam.  I saw a number of people on the trail and due to its exceptional short length we kept running into each other.  The only part of the park open for hiking is the wheel chair area.  The park's bridges need to be repaired in order to be worth the drive.
