This destination is one of several 'emergency' breaks when we have too much coffee on the road and cannot make our normal pit (pee) stop. From the parking lot stairway, you have a good view of the Suwannee River. Also, and the truss section from the original bridge is immediately seen upon entry. On our last visit we found a flood marker at the river's edge showing flood levels reached over different years. It is amazing how high the Suwannee River can rise under severe weather conditions! Just aross Rt19. on the east side are the remains to the entrance to what was Fort Manning.
