Popolopen Bridge Special Project
Project date: 
Saturday, November 24, 2012 - 9:30am
Project/Trail Location: 
Bear Mountain State Park, Popolopen Gorge
Project Description: 

Popolopen Bridge after Irene, 2011

Remember the Popolopen Bridge? This important link in the trail network at Bear Mountain State Park was washed away in last year's Hurricane Irene (photo at right).

Now, the sub-assembly of the bridge is complete and we hope to "fly" the main trusses across the creek this weekend. Many hands are needed.

If you can help, please contact project leader John Mack  for more details.
