A short urban trail on a peninsula between York Harbor and a tide pond accessed by “the world’s smallest suspension bridge.” This tidal millpond was created by a dam in 1726. Nineteen citizens of York organized and built the dam to run lumber and gristmills by an ingenious underwater waterwheel system. Special Features: world’s smallest pedestrian suspension bridge, views of Barrells Mill Pond and York Harbor, and rhododendron grove.
