Story to be completed. Notes - Bridge is listed as 1939. It looks too new for that. It has either been rebuilt or replaced since then. Possibly built in 1994 when the park was refurbished.

The photo above is a view of the downstream east face of the Upper Falls Bridge as seen from the trail on the north side of the Minnehaha Creek. The photo below is the same face of the Upper Falls Bridge as seen from a walkway leading to the base of the falls.
