Allaire Railroad Bridge

This tiny bridge, not even 10′ across, is all that remains of a railroad track off one of the hiking trails in Allaire; the rest of the track has been torn up. We had heard about a bridge and were expecting something like the trestle at Hebrew Park, but it ended up being much, much smaller. It was still a nice find after a near-mile hike into the woods.

Down a bit from the bridge I found a large tree with Christmas ornaments on its bottom. I have no idea who put them there. There’s what appears to be a hunting club a bit up another trail, but why would they do it, and so far from the building?
