Multi-use path from the village of North Lewisburg in Champaign County to the Pottersburg Bridge. The Pottersburg Bridge was built in 1868 by Reuben L. Partridge of Marysville, Ohio. Known also as the Upper Darby Bridge, this bridge originally spanned nearly 100 feet over the Big Darby Creek on North Lewisburg Road in Allen Township. This bridge was moved to its current location off of Inskeep-Cratty Road in 2006, where it was renovated as a part of a multi-use path to the village of North Lewisburg in Champaign County. This bridge was replaced by the new North Lewisburg Road Covered Bridge.
We took our dog on a short walk and came on the trail near the park in North Lewisburg. We couldn't make it to the covered bridge because of a thunderstorm but we plan on coming back and finishing it. Really nice trail.
Trail is easy and very well maintained
Good for biking not so much sight seeing
