Connecting The Reserve With Timber Crossings

The Summit Bechtel Reserve is more than just a picturesque landscape; it's a dynamic hub for Scouting events, training programs, and high-adventure activities. To seamlessly integrate the diverse features of the park, including the National Scout Jamboree and the Paul R. Christen National High Adventure Base, a robust infrastructure was required. This is where York Bridge Concepts stepped in, tasked with constructing timber boardwalks, timber vehicular bridges, and timber pedestrian bridges to provide access to all corners of this vast reserve.
