The Bendo bridge is on Conklin Road and crossed the Willowemoc Creek. This is a 48 foot town lattice truss, built in 1860. The bridge is next to the Covered Bridge Campground which was not yet open for the season during our visit in April, 1998. The bridge was cut in half and moved to this location in 1913. This bridge was originally located in Livingston Manor.

Easy to photograph portal since the bridge traffic is light. A path leads down to the creek with a nice location for a side photo.

Parking available after crossing bridge.
