Cool little bridge. Black River below is very brown. Park is cute, but the only other notable thing close by is the Pioneer Sugar factory. For those of us over 40, the Swinging Bridge motion sickness was a bit much. But glad we get to check this one off!

Swinging Bridge

In the small town of Croswell is an unusual swinging footbridge across the Black River. It's supported by two giant cables on each side, and has a plank floor. While it is kept in good condition and the local kids run across it, I didn't make it to the far side! There is a picnic area on the west side and a small park at the east entrance. It's worth a stop if you're in the area.
