Photograph the St. John's Bridge
Oregon › St. John's Bridge
Added by Austin Jackson
This is an extremely accessible spot to photograph one of Portland's most photogenic bridges.
To begin, park on North Pittsburg Ave and walk down to the river. Then, turn left and walk down the short less than a quarter mile until you see a spot where the beach is bigger than in other areas. This is an extremely good place to take photographs of the bridge, especially at night. Feel free to go further down the shore, or even go the other way. Return to your car the same way that you came.

For another great spot go across the bridge and head south about a quarter mile or so. There is a small parking lot with trail access to Forest Park, but directly across Highway 30 is a great view of the bridge where the trees open. Gives another, and totally different, perspective of the bridge!
