Getting Here Easily

gps thumbEven though we’re from the western section of the canal, we’ve known about and planned to visit this Whipple Bridge for years. In 2013 we finally went looking, but found that it was very difficult to find for non-locals like us without clear directions!  Thanks to iPhone5’s GPS capabilities, we snapped a shot of the information sign at the site (left) and include the GPS coordinates from that picture below to hopefully make your search a bit easier.

The GPS Coordinates of the Whipple Bridge at Vischer’s Ferry are 42°47′35″N 73°47′44″W
