Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail Description

The Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail begins at the Bridgeport Depot Museum and leads to the Tennessee River.  Once at the shoreline, you walk across the Tennessee River on a converted railroad bridge. An active railroad bridge runs parallel to the pedestrian bridge. Stop and enjoy the river traffic below. And, you can enjoy the historic museum before and after your walk.

Parking and Trail Access

Take US-72 to the Bridgeport exit. Travel into town on SR-277. From South Pittsburg, Tennessee turn left at the traffic light onto Broadway Avenue. Broadway Avenue will take you to the museum and the beginning of the walking path.

Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail Reviews

We had a wonderful time walking the trail, seeing the old train depot and antique trains...but, our greatest thrill was encountering an active freight train on the parallel train tracks while crossing the beautiful pedestrian bridge this morning. The very friendly Conductors gave us several nice whistle blows and we enjoyed waving back at them. The walk across the Tennessee River on the old train trestle was a truly beautiful experience. Many thanks to all in Bridgeport.
