The Vance Creek Bridge is an abandoned railroad bridge in the South East Olympic Mountains. At 347 feet high, it was the second highest railway bridge ever built in the United States. I didn’t have the nerve to walk out on it very far. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Maps are for entertainment purposes only. I don’t recommend walking on the bridge or hiking out to it since I don’t really think the Simpson Lumber Company wants people going out there. With that said, it’s not too hard to find directions on Google.

Seattle weekly reports that the bridge is now officially closed to the public. http://www.seattleweekly.com/home/954313-129/instagram-favorite-347-foot-tall-thatnwbridge-officially-closes
On Aug 2nd, someone who goes by the name ‘fisinstan’ left the comment below. – “Everyone should know that access to the bridge is now closed and people are being arrested for trespassing in the area. Too much garbage and vandalism. Stay away the security guys are there everyday.“
Not sure if this guy is genuine or just one of the Simpson flunkies but his Gravatar appears to be fake and he filled in his email address as firstname.lastname@example.org. I usually trash bogus or fake comments but I found his to be a little funny so I let it stay. OK Simpson, you got your free quote out there. Pretty sure we all knew we were’nt supposed to be out there anyways but thanks for the tip.
