Baring Bridge is a King County-owned and maintained timber suspension bridge located on NE Index Creek Road over the South Fork of the Skykomish River near the Town of Skykomish and U.S. Route 2. It was originally built in 1930 and in 1999 was designated a Historic Landmark by King County.
The bridge provides sole access to about 170 properties, including more than 40 residences, in the unincorporated community of Baring, WA. The Baring Bridge Replacement Project is a permanent solution with a long-term effort to plan, select, design and construct a new Baring Bridge.
