The 'New' Bairdstown Bridge
The Bairdstown Bridge that exists today appears in the left of the photo. Thew older iron bridge to the right was removed after completion of the new bridge.
Subject to Flooding
One of the perils of building a trail on a floodplain is the threat of occasional flooding or in this case an occasional ice jam. The Blairsville Riverfront Trail is located on the flood control area for the Conemaugh Dam which is located seven miles downstream. As water is backed up in the dam from time to time it reaches the upper limits of the flood contral area in Blairsville.
Several benches are located along the trail for a place to stop and enjoy the trail setting.

The Cokeville Bridge Piers
Now abandoned the Cokeville Bridge piers stand as a silent reminder of a once thriving community that was located across the river from the trail.
