The Portland-Columbia footbridge spans the width of the Delaware River between the towns of Portland, PA and Columbia, NJ, allowing for a scenic view of the southern edge of the Delaware Water Gap. Originally erected as a four-span timber bridge, it remained as last of the original 16 to span the Delaware River, before being destroyed by a flood on August 19, 1955.
The Portland-Columbia Footbridge today is once again a major connection for pedestrians and bicyclists, being the main connection for the September 11th National Memorial Trail and the Liberty-Water Gap Trail to cross to and from Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Users of the trail can see wildlife ranging from bald eagles to the geological rock outcrops consisting of the Delaware Water Gap. Access to the river for kayaking, canoeing and fishing can be accommodated by Portland Riverfront Park. Visitors can enjoy an opportunity for photography, painting or geocaching.
