For a nice drive in the spring, summer or even in the winter, a day trip to Hurricane Gulch is worth the drive.
The bridge is an unexpected and phenomenal feat of early Alaskan engineering. It spans 918 feet and is nearly 300 feet above the Chulitna River.
Many vacationers will take the journey on the Alaska Railroad but, if you have a vehicle, you can view this arched steel bridge over the sheer cliffs below on your own time. If you are driving yourself, there is a pullout just north of the bridge and a few trails to get a better photo vantage point.
Below are a couple of our photos from our trip.
To get to Hurricane Gulch, take the Parks Highway to mile 174 (Wasilla is about mile 40)
Dont stop on the bridge, go to the pullout just north of it and park. There are trails to walk along and take pictures.
