Kinzua Bridge State Park

Search Mount Jewett Pennsylvania

This park contains 316 acres in McKean County and features the 2,053 foot railroad bridge which has been designated as a National Engineering Landmark. Park facilities are located at the south end of the bridge and include picnic tables, drinking water, scenic overlook and an interpretive kiosk. Common game species are deer, bear, and turkey. When the Kinzua Viaduct was built in 1882, it was the highest railroad bridge in the world. Built of iron, the original viaduct was 301 feet high, 2,053 feet long. In May of 1900 it was necessary to rebuild the entire structure to accommodate heavier trains. No train crossed the bridge between June 21, 1959 and 1987. The Knox, Kane, Kinzua Railroad, formed in 1986, now offers excursion rides from Marienville to the park, a round trip distance of 97 miles. The train may be boarded in Kane for a trip to the park, a round trip distance of 33 miles.
