|September 2013 (38.63749 Degrees, -121.20748 Degrees) Alder Creek Footbridge|
The two column bents look like they are made out of driven H piles with a steel bent cap set on top. Steel brackets connect the top of the bent caps to the Glulam beams.
Something I noticed while I was standing beside the bridge was how much noise the bicycles made crossing it. Maybe it was just loose timber planking but something was doing a lot of banging as the bikes rode over the bridge.
There must be over a hundred bicycle bridges that are part of the Jebediah Smith Bike Trail. The trail was crowded with families picnicking, boating, bicycling, and hiking when I made this trip during 'Labor Day' weekend.
