The McPhaul Bridge is an 800-foot suspension bridge built in 1929 and said to have served as a model for the Golden Gate. 

It became known as the “Bridge to Nowhere” when it was replaced by a concrete bridge in 1968 – long before the term had a negative political meaning.  The bridge is closed to both vehicles and pedestrians, but you can take a free look at its graceful span by parking at From the Farm, 5158 S. Highway 95.
