My favourite bridge in Newfoundland. It's in the resettled village of La Manche (in the 1960s, the government forced Newfoundlanders to move into regional population centres to save money on the cost of providing services such as public utilities. As you can imagine, it was very socially traumatic and still has repercussions today. Here's a little information and a song about it, if you're curious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXEg4kQC1Bw
) and it's a wonderful (but EXHAUSTING) hike.
We come here frequently to drink and swim and play the guitar/sing. When you turn off the main regional highway, you have to drive for about 5 minutes on a gravel road, then park and hike about 25 minutes to get to this bridge. Still, lots of people do it. There are usually at least 10-20 people milling around at any given time. There's also a tie line under the bridge so boats come in and tie on in the river for a rest.
Switchback wooden trail down to the bridge:
