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.
