This is hyped as a mile high swinging bridge. Sounds scary! Actually the mile high part refers to the elevation above sea level. The ground under the bridge is only about 80 feet below. It does swing a little.

What's more, the bridge doesn't lead anywhere. After you cross the bridge, you're just on top of a different rock. After you look around, there's nowhere to go except back across the bridge (to the restaurant and gift shop).
