This covered bridge and the stream that flows under it combines for some great photo opportunities. Be careful on the rocks, they are slippery. It's an intimate community park that's great for decompressing. Enjoy!

This old covered bridge is a short walk from the park's main parking lot. There is a historic marker beside it telling the history of the bridge, and the man who built it, which ties into Native American history and the Trail of Tears. The...More
