Stoddard Pack Bridge

Stoddard Pack Bridge was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the late 1930’s. At the time it provided the only access to the Stoddard and Papoose portions of the wilderness. In 2014, the original 348-foot bridge was rebuilt, however, a rockslide in 2017 demolished it. A new bridge, using a design and slightly different location to minimize the odds of another rockfall collapse, will begin construction in the summer of 2021.

Since this photo was taken, the debris has been cleared out of the river. Photo by the DOT.
