The road may end here but the journey isn't over yet. Kennecott River Pedestrian Bridge crosses the main channel of the river, providing access to the road leading to the town of McCarthy and the old mining town of Kennecott. You can walk or bicycle the .6 miles to the town of McCarthy or the 5 miles to the historic mining town of Kennecott. Look for the old hand-pulled, open platform cable tram next to the pedestrian bridge. Before the state constructed the bridge in 1997, travelers had to haul themselves across on the tram.
