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

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 .

A very quick stop along our Route 1 exploration. Be sure to get over to the far end to enjoy the sandy beach with excellent views of the river and islands.

Finally stopped after passing this wonderful little park a gazillion times. The walk across the bridge is fun for all and especially for photographers of scenery, waterways & birds. Very scenic sights as you cross from one side to the other!
