Bridges in trails or parks

You previously said that wooden bridges in trails or parks meet the criteria. But what about those that aren't made of wood but are still accesible by foot and expected to be used as part of a trail. Are they also seen as good candides?
Here I add some examples:
For me -those or just parts of a footpath not a trail
The last one is interesting, looks more like a lookout than a functional bridge,. The others would not be valid imo
Except for the last one, I don't think it's distinctive. In the absence of some historical significance, I think it is up to the individual judges to decide if the candidate is accurate as a POI.
Depending on the overall nomination, I'd easily accept all of those.
Pedestrian paths are important. Especially in suburban areas, finding paths that stretch to key places is critical, with sometimes limited options across rivers or highways. Some people may see them as simple generic infrastructure, but they represent much more to culture, exercise, and exploration.
I would call the examples here pedestrian overpasses rather than bridges in trails and parks. All of them but the first are unique in visual aesthetic and I think they would all make fine wayspots.
I'd like to know because I nominated a seemingly ancient stone bridge that is on, not just one, but two named trails, and it got rejected.
