That's why I want something temporary. If I leave it there all the time, the government will see it and give me a fine. If I just put it up a few times a year when I use the land, then take it down, I don't expect them to notice or care.

The land is only worth about 10,000, I don't want to spend 20,000+ on permits, environmental studies and digging a culvert for a 10K property. It also has cliffs etc that make it unsuitable for a house. It's just for ATVing, hunting, camping, etc.

Ontario, Canada.

Here's an example, you can buy 10 acres miles from the nearest road

Kinda figured it was somewhere up there.
I was looking at engineered lumber (normally used internal to structures (enclosed) ) it's quite pricey and heavy. A 18 to 20ft span will easily hit 200lbs for each beam, depending of course on the height of the beam. Steel will break 400lbs. Add in your cross planks and (for me) the cost / time do not equal easy. Especially if your looking for a sturdy enough structure to drive a vehicle across. You stated the government will see it and give you a fine? Are they inspecting your property and the creek regularly? Is the property on both sides of the creek yours?

The creek and both banks are in the right-of-way of the road/trail. It's a former railroad bed that was turned into a recreational trail, with ATV's, cars and trucks and snowmobiles allowed.
Here's what two neighbours did, I suppose if they can get away with it maybe I can too.

I have heard mixed stories in US about easements and what they have to give you.

also there are still places with little law.

You just have the wrong kind of off-road vehicle. You need a smaller version of this.
