The Bridge To Nowhere In The Middle Of The South Carolina Woods Will Capture Your Imagination

Countless people pass over the Savannah River near Allendale each day while whizzing past an old truss swing bridge broken by time and left standing in the open position in the middle of the lower Savannah River. But few know the history of the old bridge, so we bring it to you today – along with a short trail from U.S. 301 that leads straight to the abandoned Burton’s Ferry Swing Bridge.

The trailhead for the Lower Savannah River Alliance Greenway to Burtons Ferry swing bridge starts 11.6 miles west of Allendale. Find more details about the trail by visiting
