Significance: The oldest surviving road bridge in Mount Rainier National Park, the Nisqually River Suspension Bridge is one of the few road-bearing suspension bridges in the National Park system. Although shorn of its original log elements, the timber bridge continues to reflect the NPS "rustic style" through its use of native material in an attempt to harmonize with the rugged park landscape.
