April 2011, Pemi Wilderness Suspension Bridge Update

Pemigewasset Wilderness - Remnants of suspension bridge that once crossed the East Branch of Pemigewasset River along the Wilderness Trail at the Trestle 17 location (East Branch & Lincoln Railroad) in Lincoln, New Hampshire USA. The bridge was removed because of safety issues. These remains will be removed from the wilderness at a later date.
Pemigewasset Wilderness  Suspension Bridge, Wilderness Trail – The Pile Gets Smaller 

April 2011, Pemi Wilderness Suspension Bridge Removal Update – The Plymouth State College Adventure Education Club spent a weekend in March 2011 removing roughly a 1000 lbs  (+ / -) of the remaining bridge material from the 180 foot long suspension bridge site along the Wilderness Trail in the Pemigewasset Wilderness, New Hampshire.

The club took advantage of the winter season and used sleds to drag material out to the Wilderness Boundary. Though, material remains it is great to see groups like this making a difference. Great job to the Adventure Education Club! Click here to see progress.

Happy image making..
