I also wiped out on this bridge years ago. Tore my left arm to the bone and dislocated my left knee. As bad as this section of the trail is, it used to be much worse with an additional switchback bridge closer to the start/end of the trail. Rumor is that a Sen. Howard Metzenbaum's wife crashed on this bridge and funds were earmarked to re-design the trail. I agree that this bridge needs to be replaced. The chicane should be removed as well.
