And burn off the calories from Topsham Brunswick's excellent restaurants. This all-pedestrian bridge really swings, offers great natural views, and the occasional flock of ducks. It also links to a natural loop

I revisited this elegantly engineered pedestrians-only bridge across the Androscoggin River after several years. It’s a registered historic landmark; a small plaque provides details. Built in 1892, rebuilt in 1938, it’s 332 feet (101 m) from tower to tower and 520 feet (160 m) from...More

This was a neat bridge to see but not much else right around it. The parking lot on the 295 side is only a few spaces. It's easier to park on the Topsham side.

I wouldn't plan a trip around it but if your driving by it makes for a nice quick stretch your legs pit stop. Very small parking lot, and you can't make a left coming out. Nice pictures of the river and the railroad bridge .

Saw this heading north yesterday, made a note to stop when we were heading back south. Nice views of the Androscoggin river and the bridge moves just enough to make it more interesting than a fixed span. Small parking lot on the south side of...More
