About 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 slightly different location to minimize the odds of another rockfall collapse, will begin construction in the summer of 2021.
