“A nice run leading up to an awesome view and then continuing down to the bridge below and back.”— Robert Hanson II
This trail then joins the Appalachian Trail down to the Bear Mountain Bridge, which is the only point along the AT that the trail crosses tidal water. There is a walkway separated from the roadway to cross the bridge on foot.
We then headed down to cross the Bear Mountain Bridge that can be seen from every overlook on this journey. The Bear Mountain Bridge is the only portion of the Appalachian Trail that crosses a tidal waterway. There is a great view back up at Anthony's Nose peak, making the descent to the bridge, and the return trip well worthwhile.
