Photos: Vance Creek Bridge, a Northwest hidden treasure


Vance Creek Bridge

The Vance Creek Bridge, built in 1929, was part of the Simpson Railroad which was one of the last logging railroad operations in the continental United States. The Vance Creek Bridge has been out of operation since the 1950's and spans over 400 feet long and 347 feet high making it one of the highest railway arch bridges ever built in the United States. The bridge is located deep in the forest on Washington State’s Olympic peninsula, about a two hour drive from Seattle. (Joshua Lewis / KOMO News)
