In the Spring of 2000 several local businesses joined together with supporters of Doe River Gorge to purchase and install a bridge to join our property on the other side of the river. A $20,000 matching gift was given along with several major donations of equipment, labor, and materials. In April the two sections of the pre-weathered steel structure were bolted together and hoisted in place providing foot and small vehicle access to the 3 riverfront cabins as well as quicker access to the upstream challenge course.
