A short beautiful walk on an old trestle bridge festooned with all kinds of trees and plants on both sides.
No matter what season you visit there are always flowers to be seen. Great place to research what you should plant in your own garden or just to take some wonderful photos. Situated in the picturesque village of Shelburne Falls the bridge is within easy walking distance of many fine restaurants and art galleries.
The seasonal displays of bulbs, flowers and shrubs are simply beautiful. there are always a host of blooms to photograph and plenty of inspirational ideas for ones own garden.
We visited there late Oct and the bridge still had flowers in bloom. It was so nice to walk across and see the trees with their color and the river. Very simple yet breathtaking.
Even though it is fall the bridge still has enough flowers to make it unique and beautiful. Spring and summer have to be gorgeous with all the different flowers bloomed. The river is wide enough to make it photogenic. Must see if you are in the area.

Gorgeous. Unique. Make a donation at either end.

The trolley line stopped running in 1928. But, the Burnhams had different ideas. They transformed the structure into a flower bridge in 1929 and is organized through the Womens Club of the... More
Stopped off for lunch on the Mohawk Trail and was very glad we did. A lovely town with lots of shops and an old bridge turned into a garden that you can walk over. We bought ready made sandwiches and drinks and sat on benches overlooking the falls for lunch. The flower bridge was a riot of colour and a... More
