This bridge is part of a section of road that has been abandoned for vehicular use and is now part of a trail in a state game lands area. The bridge is quite deteriorated and badly in need for preservation. The original vehicular deck was removed, a narrow wooden walkway was added. There also was a shelter added at the center of the bridge presumably for fishers. The wooden walkway is highly deteriorated with planks rotting and even missing in areas. Floor beams exhibit substantial section loss, and one of the bottom chord sections is not attached to the bottom chord connection. Despite the deterioration, rehabilitation remains feasible. The construction date is not known, but this may be an extremely early surviving truss with a polygonal Warren configuration.
There are reportedly one or more additional truss bridges further down this trail.
