April,do you know when and why they removed this bridge?I lived in Lansdale and for the world of me i can't remember this bridge.Of course,alot of times alcohol blurred my vision.I do remember the Philadelphia Folk Festival.Never went to it but fished the Perkiomen Creek near where that bridge was.That's why i would like to know why they removed it if a trail is there.
