Idaho isn’t known for its towering buildings or historic, New England-style architecture the way our coastal counterparts are. But sometimes the coolest thing about a location isn’t what you see when you get there, but rather how you get there. Life is all about the journey, right? With so many miles of rushing waterways to traverse, Idaho is full of beautiful and historical bridges to bike, walk, or simply admire from afar, and they’ll all take you somewhere incredible. From soaring abandoned trestles to terrifying swinging bridge across Idaho’s most scenic rivers, here are some of Idaho’s most memorable bridges to visit this season… and every season!

While you’re out road tripping this season you might just find yourself running across (or over) one of these breathtaking historic bridges. If so, be sure to take a photo and share it with us! Are there any other quaint or must-see local bridges that you think should be on this list? Speak up, Southern Idaho!
