“a highlight along historic Route 66”

The town of Devil’s Elbow is considered to be one of the highlights of a tour on Missouri Route 66.  The area is home to the Big Piney River and its scenic bluffs, Sheldon’s Market which doubles as the Devil’s Elbow Post Office, The Elbow Inn Bar And Grill which originally opened in 1929, and last but not least, an old steel truss bridge across the river. Built in 1941 to bring building supplies to Fort Leonard Wood. Stop at the scenic overlook from Teardrop Road, and then continue east to Trophy Lane and turn left to the old trestle bridge.

Very pretty! You can walk the bridge or drive over it. You can see big fish down below in the water!

We took lots of pictures!

As of Spring 2022 the road paint on the 'Route 66' marking is all worn off, so the photo op is totally gone! Still a pretty bridge, but definitely not worth going out of your way for. Find a better opportunity elsewhere to get your route marker pic!

This bridge is past two or three 'residents only' signs. I drove around the signs, and the bridge was pretty cool. Don't go too far past the bridge though, because I felt like I was trespassing on someone's neighborhood.
