Superior Hiking Trail - Keene Creek Bridge
Posted October 20, 2016, by Matthew Hill (mattcintosh [at] gmail [dot] com)

10/20/16 update. Concrete railings have been removed sometime and replaced with black metal railings. Appears that the width of bridge was narrowed by about 16" on each side and the railings put at the new edge.

Now considered a part of the Superior Hiking Trail, this bridge was long ago abandoned with a re-alignment of Getchell Road (Highland Avenue) and was long just a place for kids to party. It needs stabilization, especially of the original concrete railings, but appears otherwise sound.
