Appalachian Trail: Duell Hollow Bridge Collapsed/Reroute in Effect

September 9, 2021

The Duell Hollow Bridge (mile 1456.9, close to the New York/Connecticut border between the Wiley Shelter in New York and CT 55) collapsed after Tropical Storm Ida.

The bridge was officially closed due to structural issues on Nov. 23, 2019, but is now impassable due to the storm damage.

Pending replacement, the posted 1.25-mile road walk will now be the official Appalachian Trail until further notice. Please adhere to the posted detour as fording the brook can be extremely dangerous due to fluctuating water levels and currents.
