The 19th Street Bridge replaces a bridge destroyed in the 2013 flood providing access from 19th street to the area north of the student recreation center.  The new tail and bridge is an ADA rout from north campus across Boulder Creek to main campus.  The new connection spans over the Boulder Creek Bike Path and Boulder Creek, traversing a 65 foot grade differential with an elevated canopy walk system.

The trail offers ample bird watching opportunities and promotes access for maintenance which has been challenging in the past with limited vehicle access.
