Long Description:
Built by the Dominion Bridge Co in 1887, this is a steel truss bridge converted to use as a rails to trails river crossing. It has a wooden plank surface. <><><> Built on the old Pontiac Pacific Junction railroad tracks, the Cycloparc PPJ offers a relatively flat ride, enjoyable and accessible for the whole family. This 92-km off-road trail, which is for the exclusive use of cyclists and hikers, crosses the Pontiac between Bristol to the East and l'Isle-aux-Allumettes to the West. The agricultural and forest landscapes, wetlands, exceptional views of the Ottawa River and the small authentic and welcoming communities it intersects, make it a trail of contrasts and discoveries.
Date Built: 1/1/1887
