Location #A

This is the old highway bridge over Santa Margarita Creek on El Camino Real near Asunction Rd.. This bridge was built in 1937, and replaced a previous bridge. This area of Santa Margarita Creek has been a popular swimming hole for decades, and though it is posted otherwise, kids still sneak in here to swing from the ropes hanging from the old Black Oak trees.

The old railing must have been replaced at some time.
