This is and easy, family friendly hike that is fun for the whole family.

The hike begins at the Orson Smith Trailhead. From here the trail starts behind the bathrooms. It continues on to switchbacks for a few hundred feet until it reaches a road. From the road the switchbacks continue. Soon you will reach two forks. Stay on the left of the trail for both the first and and the second forks. After the second fork you are just a few hundred feet from the bridge. When you reach the bridge it is a great place to see breathtaking views of the valley and the bridge itself. This hike can easily be done in every season but after snowfall is one of my favorite times to go. The hike is easy for the whole family with great views.
