The Trestle Trail Bridge Is Open Again!

The Trestle Trail Bridge has been closed to all users for several seasons following an engineering report of deterioration in the concrete support pillars. We are delighted that repair work has been carried out, and on Saturday September 21 2019, the Trestle Trail bridge re-opened to the public.

This is a beautiful community walking trail. A former section of rail line, the Trestle Trail meanders along the Mersey River and through the picturesque town of Liverpool. The surface is well packed and it is a wide trail. There are fantastic river views in both directions. The bridge section now also connects with Pine Grove Park.

Location:  Liverpool.

Trailhead: Take exit 19 off Highway 103 to Liverpool.  Vehicles can be parked at the Circle K Gas Station.  GPS (Bristol entrance): 44.045456, -64.722002.  

Significant Feature: Beautiful views of the Mersey River.

Trail Length: 1.2km 

Hiking Time: 20 mins

Ability Level:  Level trail is suitable for all skill levels.

For your comfort and safety: Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather conditions.  Please note that the trail is not cleared in winter so ice may be a concern.  Please stay on the trail path and leave only footprints.  Pets should remain on a leash and bags are supplied at each trailhead so you can pick up after your dogs.  

Visitor Services:   Year round washrooms are available at the Circle K Gas Station.
