Walk Over A Gorgeous Bridge On The Chattooga River Trail, A Moderate 3.8-Mile Hike In North Carolina

Wandering along a shady trail admiring the flora and the fauna can do wonders for the soul. Further adding to the overall experience, a trail that has a destination or special feature, like an old iron footbridge with a wooden floor crossing over a scenic river, adds some anticipation to the adventure. Hiking in North Carolina is always a fun time, but when you’re in search of an old bridge in the middle of the forest, there’s an added level of excitement to the day’s excursion.
