Boardwalk 6 is the final boardwalk in the Bridge 2 to John Jay Middle School trail section.
It is on a down slope and one side of the trail drops off significantly, creating several design challenges which were overcome by leveling the foundation beams using stone piers.
We also integrated the uphill ramp into the grade of the hill and made a smooth transition to the downhill side of the boardwalk.

- Total length ~35′
