This Friday ( weather permitting), I will be driving up the Saw Mill River parkwaY on the way to the "Big E" . I always like to study the old put on the way up .... And down if it's not too dark!


Good news/bad news... the good news:

If you have time... the Saw Mill ends at I-684. The first exit you will hit on 684 is 6A - Goldens Bridge. You will exit on to Rt. 22. Make a left and Follow 22 for a short distance - make a right  on to North Street (you should see a Metro-North parking lot on the far corner). Follow North Street around the curve (past a small strip mall on your right) till it ends at Rt. 138. Make a left on to 138, cross over 684 and the Metro-North tracks at the Goldens Bridge Station - continue on 138 for a short distance and on your left you will see Bridge L158 from the Lake Mahopac branch of the Put.

Now the bad news... on 684, Goldens Bridge only has an exit going northbound and an entrance going southbound. If you decide to have a look, make sure you have a GPS!!! You can use the address of the MN station (1 Old Bedford Road, Goldens Bridge, NY 10526). Going in either direction, you will need to go use exit 8, Hardscrabble Road, which has an entrance and exit in both directions.


My brother lives 5 minutes from there, so I’ve seen the bridge many times.
