The Old Alton Bridge is located in the City of Copper Canyon at the junction of Pilot Knoll Trail and Elm Fork Trial and is part of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers park system. The parking lot is just south of Teasley Lane on Old Alton Road.
The bridge has gone by other names over the years. The haunting and lore of ghosts associated with Goatman’s Bridge, as Old Alton Bridge is still known, adds a sense of drama and mystery to the bridge.
