Located about 10 kilometers east of Badong along the southern slope of the mighty Yangtze River gorge, the Wuyuandong or Forest Park Bridge leaps across a deep creek gully along route 334 that eventually dead ends in the mountains along county road 211. The total length of the bridge is 220 meters. The Badong Forest Park has many kilometers of hiking trails and waterfalls.
