Lincoln Woods Suspension Bridge

(2 reviewss)


The Lincoln Woods Suspension Bridge is one of the most beautiful structures in the White Mountains National Park of New Hampshire. The bridge is 160 feet long and carries the Lincoln Woods Trail over the Pemigewasset River. It is open to pedestrians only and is about 7 feet wide. The bridge is extremely well-built and does not sway at all. It is a wonderful place to stop at and enjoy the stunning views of the river and surrounding mountains! 

It’s located just a few hundred feet from the Lincoln Woods Trailhead parking lot, making it extremely easy to access. Dogs are welcome to cross the Lincoln Woods Suspension Bridge but must be leashed.
