Swinging Bridge in the Catskill Woods

Hikes in the Catskills are often full of trees, rocks, and other natural surroundings.  But every once in a while, some sort of manmade structure can add another component to a hike, whether it be an old fire road, a mine, a dilapidated cabin, or even a bridge crossing a stream.  This swinging bridge was a really neat structure to come upon in the Catskills, and even though it was located somewhat close to the town of Palenville, it felt like it was out in the middle of nowhere.  The bridge itself was certainly sturdy, but it had enough of a swing to it that I had to watch my footing a couple times to make sure I didn’t trip myself!

  1. How inviting! And yet deceiving because the bridge span looks so short in the photo. I know better though. Been across these things before!

    • Haha, it was tricky but not too bad. Plus, it crossed a beautiful stretch of stream, so it was difficult to pass it up!
