Palenville Swinging Pedestrian Bridge
Palenville is a small hamlet located at the base of the Catskill Mountains of New York, and apparently about 100 years ago, the people of the town erected this swinging pedestrian bridge across Kaaterskill Creek. It’s a nice bridge that certainly has a bit of swing to it, and it crosses a cool stretch of the Kaaterskill. After a quick (but exhausting!) hike along the Long Path in the Catskills last August, I took a short detour to visit this bridge and was glad I checked it out.
