    Located in the town park of Winterset (parking and admission free). There is actually no river beneath, only a hollow. Has a two-sided sharp (rather than flat) roof.

    This is one of the two bridges featured in the movie, and in my opinion the best fit into the landscape.

    If you are driving from I-80 South, this is the first bridge you encounter. Drive 169 and watch for the brown sign to the right, then follow a gravel road for three miles.
