A truly beautiful site, spanning the Willamette River. Not many bridges can compare with the look of this bridge. It has been featured on television shows like GRIMM, and the LIBRARIANS.

This is a lovely bridge at the north end of the Willamette River before it merges with the Columbia. The best way to enjoy it is to park on the St. Johns side of the river. There is a nice park under the bridge with free parking. You can then walk across the bridge and get great views of Portland... More

This bridge is old but it has a lot of character compared to modern concrete bridges. The view of Mt Hood, Mt Adams and Mt St Helens from the bridge was excellent. Take a drive over the bridge, find a place to park and walk back across

The vista and architecture of this green hued steel structure is the gem of the North Portland peninsula. Travel is a tight two lanes in either direction to be shared with large trucks & bicyclists. It is rated the most beautiful bridge in Portland

Not much I can say. Just go down Rte 30 and enjoy the view. Then drive over it on your way to a UP futbol game. When the opposing goal keeper is about to put the ball in play, yell "Puto!"

This early 1930's bridge is quite the beauty in the architectural sense. Great views looking towards Portland when you cross it and easy route into St Johns from Portland.

Very sturdy cool old bridge. Beautiful structure and has great views of the city, is a park underneath with flowers, I recommend parking below the bridge and checking out Cathedral Park nearby.

One of if not the nicest looking bridges in Portland. We drove over in our rental, but noticed quite a few people walking across on the walk-way too.

If you are into bridges, the St. Johns is our premier destination. If not the oldest in Portland, surely it is one of the oldest, and Portland's most grand bridge. Many photographers flock there for a sunrise or sunset to capture it at the right moment.
