Covered Bridge start, hilly forest and meadows, beautiful MD views Very well marked with orange blazes. Turn left out of parking lot and follow along river. As you approach bridge, watch for sharp left and begin a steep climb. Follow blazes for the entire trail. (turns use double blaze with top blaze signalling direction). We hiked the trail in July and constantly stopped for rasberries along the way. Watch out for poison ivy. Parking is $3 resident and $4 out of state. Maps available at office for $6.

Was very fun but easily got a bit confused on how to get back. No worries we retraced our steps and we're there in no time!

Our 3.3 mile hike turned into 6 because it was hard to keep to the trail. Watch out for the horse poo! Not too many good sights, when you reach the nature center and follow the trail it gets harder!

Great hiking area. Saw some beautiful scenery and wildlife. Was surprised at the height of some of the trails overlooking the Big Elk Creek.
