Lake of the Hanging Glacier question, bridge?

Does anyone know what deal is with the bridge, is it permanently gone, or something that just needs to be installed each summer so early season access is not possible?

Thanks, and what about Wasatch Mountain? I know there's no "trail" but I've read it's a hike and little to no hands on scrambling?

Is Mt Fairview difficult?

We're hiking with two kids on our backs and was wondering how difficult Fairview is? Is there anything scrambling? How's the footing? How steep is the trail compared to say, Tent Ridge?

Thanks

What would make Floe Lake as a dayhike strenuous? Its 700m and 21km return, those seem like pretty typical dayhike ranges? It's the same distance and elevation gain as the Iceline trail

Lake of the Hanging Glacier as a dayhike?

I've seen this hike almost always mentioned as a backpack, but looking at the stats, 9km to the lake and 700m elevation gain, would this not make more sense as a dayhike? I also read that the views...
