View from Connellsville Memorial Bridge Sidewalk View

View from Abandoned West Yough Railroad Bridge

An abandoned steel trestle railroad bridge offers a nice view of the Youghiogheny River just north of Connellsville and along the Great Allegheny Passage Trail. Concealed mostly by woods between the trail and river, the bridge becomes visible as it sits behind a giant rock that obviously was moved following the abandonment of the railroad line. Most visitors will walk up to the bridge and look ...
