Significance: The "rustic style" Christine Falls Bridge carries the Nisqually Road over the narrow box canyon of Van Trump Creek at Christine Falls. The graceful stone-faced reinforced concrete spandrel arch bridge contributes to the setting, and is one of the park's most successful examples of the integration of road-related structure into the environment. The overlook at the bridge is one of the most popular in the park.
