Re-visit today.....new photos, evidence of plaques that were once mounted on each side, and original stone abutment on west side....112 years old, thing is still solid except for a huge tree ding, this sucker is sooooo remote, fun time
You bet - a fun trip. Slight mistake in my comment below, the last part of the last sentence should read "the EAST entryway off rugged Jackson Road...."
That is great news. This is an interesting pony truss. Looks like it for a bit distorted by a falling tree. Thanks for venturing out there to find it.
Yes, bridge is back. I had followed a dropped pin on the last known location a few months ago, at some point the dropped pin was changed and I followed it again today ( Sept. 27, 2016) and found the bridge and it's correct location with the correct pin. A real survivor, but man getting to it was brutal - the west side entryway, Jackson Rd just east of Ottawa Airport, is chained off, the west entryway off rugged Jackson Rd in s crop field is a looooong hike, but worth it!!
Did this bridge come back...minus the railings...?
I see some inriggers...
A real shame...This was a nice pony with extended railings.
Thanks for the update. I have edited the page.
