When you leave here heading west go back north on Hwy. 281 about 2.4 miles to where you turn west onto Bridgeport Hill.

NOTE: Road Closure ... Beginning in early summer 2022 the Pony Bridge at the bottom of Bridgeport Hill is scheduled to be closed for reconstruction. During the bridge work take I-40 west to Exit 101 at Hinton and go north to old 66 at Hinton Junction .
