Getting There

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. Accessibility: This asphalt and wooden bridge trail is estimated to typically be at least 7 feet wide. The slope is estimated to be mostly gentle and range from -5% (downhill) to 5% (uphill) grade. There are not ADA-compliant car parking spots at the small and unpaved trailhead lot.

Paved multi-use bike and walking path. It runs between two farm fields do not much to see that is exciting. The end was pretty cool with a neat covered bridge which is by far the most interesting thing to see on the trail. It was Fall and cold out when I went so it was pretty quiet and not heavily in use at that time.

Bridge at the beginning is cool, but the rest of the trail is straight and flat. Great for running or biking, less interesting than we were hoping for for a hike.

This paved trail is long, straight and flat, pet-friendly, easy for families, and diplays some local history while travelling between crops. Walking, jogging and biking are recommended uses. I strongly recommend using bug spray.

Nice easy flat paved walking/biking trail. Beautiful Spring midday walk. Plenty of birds to see and the trees popped with color. Runs along a lovely little brook. Mayflies were a bit wicked..........

Paved trail that leads to a very nice covered bridge. If you want to add a lil extra to this trail.. go through the Pottersburg Bridge to the road, then go right on the road for about 3/4 mile to another covered bridge (Spain Creek Bridge).

3.5 miles or so. Out and back. All paved and flat. The bridge is at the beginning or the end depending on where you start.

This trail is exactly as described. However we enjoyed the paved pathway and seeing the old bridge at the end.

Paved trail with no elevation.I gave a 5 star review because there is nothing to complain about for what it is. If you want to hike, this probably isn't the trail for you because it is paved and easy. Good for bikes too!

Nicely maintained trail with trash receptacles and benches along the way. Beautiful bridge at the end, well worth the trip. Very short, but flat and paved path. Easy path for walking/running.' The dogs found it somewhat interesting, though I found it to be OK for one visit.

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.

I love the name. I Live in North Lewisburg and take this trail often. This trail is all paved, This bridge was moved from about 3/4 a mile away. This path has great parking at the other end than shown, in North Lewisburg. Bridge end is on Inskeep Cratty Rd (off of State Rt 245) and the other in is on East St in North Lewisburg, There is also geocashing on this trail. Clues on Geocashing.com.
