Building/structure dates: 1933 initial construction
Significance: Bridalveil Creek Bridge is one of two "rustic style" park bridges which appear to be of log construction. Actually, the structure has a steel I-beam and reinforced concrete deck, and the logs only form the sides of the bridge and the guard rail. The design harmonizes well with the montane forest setting.
