that's part of the USDA Forest Service. Here's a link:

They should have some helpful resources.

Subject: timber pedestrian bridge

I need to design a pedestrian bridge to span a 40' slough in a local =
forest preserve area.
I'm not sure yet if the system will need to span the entire 40' or if it =
can be built as a boardwalk.
I have the Pedestrian Bridge & Walkway Design Guide from the Southern = Pine
The materials will need to be pulled or carried to the site so I'm not =
sure that full span GluLams are feasible.
The boardwalk solution is straight forward but I would appreciate any
recommendations for a full span system, timber or otherwise.
