Mountain Water Company is a proud supporter of the new Rattlesnake Bridge, a 120-foot cable-stayed structure that crosses Rattlesnake Creek at the end of Duncan Drive, connecting hikers and bikers with the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area.
The bridge was the creation of Craig Rawlings of the Montana Community Development Corporation who set out to prove that functional, aesthetic structures could be constructed from small-size trees. Small-diameter roundwood salvaged from hazardous fuel reduction projects was used in the construction of the bridge, which was funded by a $135,000 grant by the U.S. Forest Service's Wood In Transportation program.
Mountain Water Company now maintains a kiosk at the site informing
visitors about the Rattlesnake Watershed and ways we can help protect
