Lore

History: Probably built during the early Third Age when it is known that the Dúnedain built at least two other bridges. This would make it about 3,000 years old.
The Last Bridge is the easternmost bridge built by the kings of Arnor upon the Great East Road. It marks the border between the barrens of the Lone-lands and Trollshaws in the shadow of the Misty Mountains, where lies Rivendell, refuge of Elrond Halfelven.
As Strider led Frodo Baggins and his companions to Rivendell they crossed the Last Bridge, and there Strider discovered a beryl — an Elf-stone, or more specifically, an emerald — which possibly was a sign that friends had passed that way. Indeed, the mighty Elf-lord Glorfindel had left the stone, and later he aided in the rescue of Frodo from the Nazgûl at the Ford of Bruinen. — [1] [2]


Beyond the Last Bridge the domain of Men ends. While the Lone-lands have long been left desolate and rarely-traveled, the lands beyond are altogether wild and untamed. Only the well-seasoned wanderer or skilled adventurer would brave Trollshaws alone. Older even than the ruins of fallen Rhudaur that mark hilltops across the Lone-lands, the Last Bridge stands as the sole safe crossing over the Hoarwell river (Mitheithel in elvish tongue) and east into the Trollshaws. It has endured millennia of wars and neglect. Many have walked these stones — ancient kings and savage armies, Elf-lords and Nazgûl. — Hero's Guide
