The landscape surrounding the bridge is very scenic. The Visitor Center, parking lot, and Canyon Rim Trail are all right by the bridge. We were able to watch three base jumpers jump from the bridge... more »
This is a beautiful bridge (underneath)! As we were driving over it we saw a couple of base jumpers on the bridge. We stopped in the scenic outlook parking and walked down to the steps. The gorge is GORGEOUS!! Beautiful waterfalls, rocks, river! So glad we stopped for a few minutes to enjoy it.
Visitor center with good information and recommendations. Beautiful valley with Snake River belie Perrine Memorial Bridge. Easy access free parking with a walk out vantage point of the bridge. Worth the stop if only to Chronicle the Perrine Memorial Bridge.
