Rocky Forest Road Bridge
Posted October 26, 2012, by Wolfgang Dirnbeck (Dirnbecks [at] aol [dot] com)

This bridge is still used for foot traffic every hunting season including 2012/13 season. It is a lifeline between the hunting areas and cabins located on rocky forest road. The quarry owner is trying to halt us from using this public right of way. Any help to prevent this would be of great appreciation. We are care takers of the bridge and its historical significance.

Rocky Forest Rd Stone Arch Bridge
Posted June 14, 2008, by Dwight K. Lent (cwazywabt [at] gmail [dot] com)

A very little known stone arch bridge that no longer has traffic, including foot traffic. I stumbled across this while driving my dad to a small fix-it job and while spending time with my 4yr old daughter exploring the river. The bridge adjoins Mr. Russell's property where my dad was working and so far he is the only source of information on the bridge that I can find.

The bridge is a short walk up from the Susquehanna river just below Sugar Run.

It was a bridge that connected Rocky Forest rd to Golden Hill Rd at the beginning of the 1900's. Any responses would be welcome,Please enjoy the pictures!
