York, Maine: Wiggly Bridge

Also known as the World's Smallest Suspension Bridge, it's limited to foot traffic only and does get wiggly when crossed.

Lilac Lane, York, ME
From US Hwy 1 in York turn east onto York St./US Hwy 1A. Drive 1.5 miles, then turn right onto Lilac Lane. The bridge will be a quarter mile on the right -- just before you get there look for the parking spaces on the left. You'll have to make a U-turn. Don't park illegally.

Wiggly Bridge

I have to agree with tipster Charles that the parking is awful. We had the same experience. A 10 minute visit and a $50 ticket spoiled the day.

Sounds as if the town may be using Wiggly Bridge as a source of parking ticket revenue.

Wiggly Bridge

Parking is horrible. Permit parking only! I got a 50 dollar ticket. Out of the car for ten minutes to take a few pictures. Plenty of empty spaces; I didn't stop anybody else from parking.

Wiggly Bridge

The Wiggly bridge lives up to its name; it wiggles when crossed. The bridge connects a walkway along an old dam to a trail leading to Steedman Woods. It's advertised as World's Smallest Suspension Bridge. Parking is very tough, but it makes for a pretty cool photo op. Beautiful setting that is worth the effort and FREE!
