It's another bridge that you can walk across with a view of the river (which was dirty and low). No attractions, no place for the small kids to play or explore, and the local food is all from US Foods.

We enjoyed a picnic lunch overlooking the Yellowstone River right by this historical bridge. We always stop to enjoy old bridges when we travel and this one was delightful. Due to it's crumbling supports, it is no longer possible to drive across it, but one...More

Just stopped and viewed this bridge because we had heard about it. Glad we stopped even though we had little time to be there.

It is an old bridge, but not a pretty bridge. I am a structural engineer who designs bridges, and I did not find this to be all that exciting. It is interesting from an historical perspective, but other than that, nothing to go out of...More

The quarter-mile long historic wLking/biking bridge over the Yellowstone is the starting point for other trails. On the west end of the bridge, follow the dike (levee) to Black Bridge Fishing Access. There are different trails that start from each of the 3 parking lots...More

Actually located about 6 blocks further south on Merrill Ave than the location says. It's about 3 blocks off of Merrill on Bell Street. It was an old bridge but we all enjoyed looking at it and we walked 1/2 way then turned around and...More

Going across the bridge and back is a pretty short walk. We love starting on the east side of the bridge (the side by Reynolds Market) and walking west (towards the big building with GTA on it) at sunset. You can also walk underneath the...More
