The historical Ben Franklin Bridge, opened in 1926, offers expansive city skyline views and is itself a stunning structure. The iconic suspension bridge once included two streetcar tracks in addition to vehicle lanes and spans 7,456 feet across the Delaware River. Pedestrians and bicyclists can use the bridge to travel safely between Philadelphia and Camden on a walkway separated from traffic (the bridge carries I-676/U.S. Route 30). The walkway is open between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily from October through April, and until 9 p.m. the rest of the year. You can access the walkway on the PA side from 5th and Market Streets. From the NJ side, the trailhead is 3 blocks from the Cooper Street/Rutgers Station. The trail is open from 6 a.m. – 7 p.m.
