The Remarkable Bridge In Colorado That Everyone Should Visit At Least Once
At first glance, a bridge may seem like your run-of-the-mill piece of architecture, but if you sit down to think about it (if you are into that sort of thing), they are actually poetic, as bridges can transport you from one world to another. I know, my thoughts are cheesy and far-reaching, but I can’t help but feel this way whenever I see this charming Colorado footbridge that everyone should visit:
One of the most charming and criminally overlooked towns in Colorado may just be Nederland; a quaint, Boulder County oasis that has something for everyone!
Incorporated in 1885, Nederland is home to just over 1,500 residents, as well as such all-natural beauty as wide-open trails and spaces...
...crystal clear lakes and streams...
...and the must-drive Peak-to-Peak Scenic Byway.
If you want to see all of the above, just hop on Peak to Peak, which runs the 55 miles from Estes Park to I-70 and passes through some of the best views in all of Colorado.
As if the surrounding colors were not reason enough to visit, the town of Nederland (which promises that "Life Is Better Up Here") is a gem all on its own, as it is home to one-of-a-kind restaurants, uniquely repurposed buildings, and our personal favorite...

...the Middle Boulder Creek Covered Bridge.
While the bridge may appear to have been built around the time of the town's inception, it is actually somewhat new, as it only came to be in 1988.
The 22-foot-long Middle Boulder Creek Covered Bridge is located along Bridge Road (also State Route 119) and can be crossed year round.
