I love covered bridges and this shorty version was perfect. The park right next to it was a pleasant surprise with playground, picnic tables and toilets. The park allows you to get up close and personal with the bridge and stream before driving through it.
A rest stop as part of the Tour de Fredrick. Beautiful little area for a picnic, shade, clear running steam, and add historic covered bridge.
