One of 10 collectible trail pins, this Kinzua Bridge State Park pin commemorates the history of the Kinzua Bridge, dating back to 1882 when between 40 and 125 men worked on the iron viaduct, completing it in only 94 days with no casualties. Following an F-1 tornado in 2003, the bridge was reinvented and constructed into the Kinzua Skywalk in 2011, attracting visitors from all over the world.
