A new pedestrian bridge was built on the PRR bridge abutments in Mt. Morris. It's 450 foot long!
In any event - just to echo a few comments on here. From what I recall, the slide area in Letchworth State Park was also a contributing factor the the PRR Rochester Branch abandonment as this area was a constant maintenance headache and safety worry. I crossed it on foot myself a few times when biking through there - and as Dan said, there's an underground water source you can see as you walk across. It's dangerous in that slides usually happen without warning.
