  • Great place to spend a few hours on a hot day! We took our dog, and our kids to this beautiful old covered bridge. There is a short hiking trail along the river, and several great spots to swim.

People come and go, but this spot is seldom crowded for long. We went on a weekend and it was great.
  • Very nice 👌 anyone should go.
