    If you are a fan of the 1981 movie "Escape from New York," you will want to visit this bridge that was used in the movie. It's also of interest to fans of old bridges and places off the beaten path. I...  more »

    We parked on the Illinois side because of stories that the Missouri side was closed. The GPS didn't lead directly to it, but it is pretty easy to figure out how to get to it. You see is adjacent to th...  more »

    A fun place for walk or bike ride too bad they closed the Saint Louis side. So in order to park your car the only convenient and safe option is crossing over to the IL side then crossing back over the island.

    What a nice place for a walk across the Mississippi River! This bridge was part of old Route 66 from 1930 to 1965. Plenty of photo ops! Signs tell the history. 1 mile one way across bridge. No restrooms on the Illinois side but there was a port-a-potty on the Missouri side at the time of this review. Port-a-potty was handicap approved. Park on the Illinois side as the Missouri side is closed to parking. Lots of trails to hike which is mostly flat so it's easy.

    Off the beaten path fun. Dont just walk next to the Mississippi walk over it and enjoy route 66. Please note must be entered from Illinois side unless on bike or foot.

    Where Route 66 crossed the Mississippi River. The bridge has been beautifully preserved as a car-free park. It's about a mile to cross it.

    We often ride the Riverbend trails from Missouri through to Madison, Venice, Granite City and to the Arch. Great sights walking or riding across the Chain of Rocks bridge.
