The bridge is open year round, weather permitting as snow removal may be delayed. There is a walking path on either side of the bridge that have great views of the Delaware River. Blade Eagles, Hawks, Turkey vultures and many other birds are in the area every day. On the NY side you can go under the bridge and walk... More

11-13-14 This is an interesting structure to be used for so long and for two different purposes; first for transporting boats and now for cars and trucks. I walked it and then drove across it today. Information placards were very helpful. Eagles are all around.

We’ve been here before. During a long drive heading back to New England from a trip to Baltimore for the 200th anniversary of Francis Scott Key’s writing of the lyrics to the “The Star-Spangled Banner,” we detoured for an overnight in Budd Lake, NJ near Allentown, PA and the Pocono Mountains. Then, we drove though all three National Park Service... More

If you are on a day trip this place in beautiful. It crosses the Delaware River and is very scenic. The walkway is fun for a nice river view and if you are lucky you might even get to see and American Bald Eagle or two. If you are in the area a must see. Really old and really interesting.... More

I remember handing a twenty five cent toll to the toll taker to drive over the bridge. Now if one walks over the bridge and looks to the south you can see V shaped eel traps made of rocks that were built by Indians long ago. very cool.

The National Park Service has done a great job restoring the bridge. It is well worth taking the time to stop and walk over, especially since it is free.

The one lane bridge that connects PA to NY state was an aqueduct that also carried barges. Visit the old toll house.

It's a bridge from 1847 built by the guy that built the Brooklyn Bridge. You can walk across and drive across but that's about it. Interesting history is the fact that it was part of a canal. If you are in the area worth a 5 minute stop if you are a history buff.

Interesting side trip for history buffs. Provides a nice history of the bridge and canals. Unfortunately due to poor sign placement we traveled twenty five minutes out of our way.

This bridge was built as a aqueduct over the river for coal barges. Mules pulled the barges and the tow-paths are here for you to walk across. A great spot to see Bald Eagles, Red Tail Hawks, Turkey Vultures and other birds. There is information at the parking lots on either side with bridge info. This is a single lane... More
