The possible location for a Ozark Trail Meramec River crossing is highlighted at https://vimeo.com/131810469. The vision to stretch the OTA from St Louis to Arkansas is alive and well. An opportunity is at hand to secure a crossing near Pacific MO, on the Bend Rd – Withington Ford Bridge. This historic, 100 year-old bridge, soon to be replaced by a modern bridge downstream, could be the gateway between the backcountry OT experience to the south and the more developed trail systems in St Louis County.
After viewing the film, visit the Pacific River Walk’s website for more information on how you can help save the bridge: http://www.pacificriverwalktrail.org/save-bend-bridge.html
