Field Trip after December 12 The Paranormal Way Meetup and Meal

We'll be taking a field trip after the December 12 Meetup and Meetup Meal. We've had several requests to go to Old Alton Bridge, so here we go, now that the weather's cooler and the bugs aren't so bad.

We'll be dining at Genti's Pizza & Pasta on Swisher Road, so we'll be less than 4 miles from the Bridge. We always enjoy going to Old Alton Bridge. Be sure to bring your cameras and audio recorders! I don't remember if we've ever been there and not gotten either interesting photos, evps or both. Sometimes someone will have even more of an experience!

Be sure to bring the proper attire. Open toed shoes are not recommended. The paths are equestrian trails, and there are sometimes things in the path (twigs, too). Bring jackets and hats in case you need them. It does get cold out there sometimes.

Instructions to Old Alton Bridge

From I-35E take the Swisher Rd exit (in Hickory Creek/Corinth) and turn west (left if you’re going northbound). Go approximately 3.7 miles. You’ll pass a high school on the right, keep going on Swhisher Rd. On the left there will be a storage place and a large cell tower. Just past there (as the road curves right) is Old Alton Road. Turn left. (If you go past the second high school and the cemetery, you’ve gone too far.) Approximately .02 miles on the left hand side you will see an entrance to a parking lot (this area is below the level of the road and may have potholes) and it’s just before the new bridge. Turn into that parking lot. We’ll meet at the benches. Follow the path from the parking lot (there’s an opening on the left side of the gate where you can easily walk in.)

    Learned SOOOO much from Robin. It was such a great experience for me and met a lot of people. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. Can't wait to meet up again. :)

    I missed the turn and no one gave that clear a direction on how to get there.

    Cold!!! I stayed a short while but was underdressed for the location. However, we had the bridge pretty much to ourselves and the stillness and quiet made it seel all the more colder. Next time bring a bigger coat and gloves.

    Unfortunately, this is not a wheel-chair friendly area. The ground can be quite uneven, and the gate on the side is not shaped for a wheel-chair to go through, and I don't know if one would be able to go under the main gate (there to keep people from driving in). One of the trails has a low gate, so one would not be able to go on that trail. And there is a step up to get on the bridge to cross over to the other side.
