Brett. The Burma bridge site is at least 100m upstream of the new bridge. To access, cross the new bridge to the west bank. Continue N/W on the new trail. Look carefully, about 15m into the forest to the right, for the faint, rotting remnants of an old boardwalk. It is easy to miss, as it blends into the forest floor. Its not far from the new bridge - maybe 25m to 100m. You'll see a small section, but once into the woods, you'll find this large section. Follow it and remnants of old trail to the site.


Look for old cable at the site. They girdled the anchor trees to death when they wrapped the cables; but this old cable wrapped snag remains on the west bank.


This shot across the creek is from the old snag. If you don't hit the creek at the right spot, maybe you'll recognize these rocks to see how far off you are.
