We need to really come down to reality on the bridge. But first, yes the turn may be a little scary at what is now being referred to as Chicken Rock. I like to call it the narrows just not to confuse it with Chicken Rock on the Dusy trail. But as far as the bridge goes, Thom is absolutely correct on the safety issue. It was checked thorougly by a professional civil engineer and has been given a weight limit. And we have driven fully loaded very large full size vehicles over it and have even seen fully loaded suburbans go over it. So let's not build up this danger thing and again give someone the idea that it should be removed. That battle was already fought and won, thus the engineering review and posted limit. Just enjoy and take your time going through these areas with a 4WD high clearance vehicle. And most of all, enjoy.
