During the summer of 2020, our dedicated and talented construction crew built and installed the Bamberg Bridge over the Bamberg Creek. The Sandhills Side Trail has been incorporated into the main trail allowing hikers to avoid road hiking on Sandhills Road. Instead, the trail takes you to the bridge and across the Bamberg Creek, then south to Berlett’s Rd at km 86.2
Designed to withstand the high waters of spring melt, the bridge was tested in early March 2021. Echoing the sentiments of the Elton John song, I’m Still Standing, the bridge withstood the high waters successfully. Click HERE to view video of the bridge and area from Mid March, 2021.
