Mesmerizing!

The first time I saw this bridge I felt like I had stepped back in time! It's a real Portland gem and should not be missed! Be sure to check out Cathedral Park just below it!

This is a very high bridge and during the work week is heavily traveled by trucks. Interesting design with a great view at the apex of the bridge.

This bridge is truly photogenic and just waiting for the next viewer. I am not a bridge fanatic but I make St. John's bridge an exception. I am a bit inspired every time I travel over it and often stop just to extend my view.

San Francisco has the Golden Gate....Portland has the Green Gate. This bridge spans the Willamette from St. Johns to Litton. A very nice bridge to photograph from an number of places around it. Or just drive across it for great views.

A very beautiful bridge with great patina and structure. There are a number of great photo spots possible. Reminds you of a slower more romantic time.

Well, let's see. I drive my car to the bridge, made it all the way across, and safely departed on the other side. By my criteria, that's a perfect score. I also highly recommend many other bridges in Portland.

We live just around the corner from this bridge and love to see it all the time. its a great little walk across (though the sidewalks are narrow) with great vies of the city, the river, and Mt. Hood on a clear day. The bridge it's self is beautiful with forest park on one end and down town St. Johns... More

Love driving over this bridge from the Forest Park side of Portland (Hwy 30) to St Johns. Near University of Portland and other North Portland delights!

Wish this bridge had been built more central to town, as it's a very attractive landmark. It's a good path to parts of Portland that many people don't see - Sauvie Island, North Portland, etc

Its a bridge. What can I say? Is a TALL OLD BRIDGE and I worry about earthquakes every time I go over the thing, LOL. Its a curiosity because of its age and design compared to Portlands other bridges. People walk across it. I certainly could not take that outer edge walk. Not with a fear of heights. You fancy...
