Fido, any hope of a monstrous cruiser making it to this bridge?

Big Red Oak Creek Bridge

Found 2 bridges yesterday whilst tagging... a superior riding day! (impressed with the vocabulary? I am)

This is the longest and oldest bridge in Georgia. Says it's in Woodbury, but it isn't, it's in Imilac, behind the deer processor (gotta love Georgia).

While we were taking pics we had the beast parked on the rickety boards of the ramp leading to the bridge. From below, we hear a woman ask "that thing won't leak oil into my car, will it?" She had her open convertible parking underneath the rickety boards so she wouldn't have to walk too far to place her tootsies in the river. WTF? Don't give a shit about your car... we hope it's not leaking oil. I kinda hope it dripped a drop for me...

Shouldn't be too big a problem, IF the gate is open. I've seen it left open most times I go by there, but occasionally I see it closed.

Turn off of Hwy 52 on the east side of FT Mtn onto Conasauga Rd. Its only about 1/2 mile or less on the left. Look down the road bank and you'll see the little bridge hiding there in the woods.

Mitch drives within a half mile of it frequently, maybe he can do some recon on that gate for you.

Is'nt there one in Nimblewell?

I was heading up towards the plane crash and think I passed one on the left. Caught it in the corner of my eye on a right hand sweeper before the pavement ends. Was keeping a pretty good pace.

The old wooden bridge at our cabin. Would make a good spot for a small covered bridge.

Valley Alabama

OK, this isn't technically Georgia, but it is about 5 miles over the border, and worth the visit. Valley, Alabama...another bridge by the famous builder Horace King.



And just down the block is the COOLEST set of statues, made entirely of train parts.

Imlac is unincorporated maybe why the Red Oak bridge is listed as Woodbury. The state eliminated some of the little communities off their official state map some years age with and much controversy followed. Don't know how all that worked out. There used to be a bridge over white oak creek north of their but partying rednecks burned it down some years ago. I live here and know the surrounding area well your down my way.
