  • 2: a means of progress or advancement


A step-stone bridge is a simple bridging allowing a pedestrian to cross a natural watercourse or pond, or a garden's water feature where water is allowed to course between stone steps. Unlike other bridges it has no spans. Step-stone bridges, along with log bridges are likely to be the oldest bridge types. They are often built by hikers and disarranged during periods of high, fast water.
