Covered Bridge

The Covered Bridge can be found while exploring the one-mile trail loop through the Forest. Constructed in 2002, this mid-century modern inspired bridge spans the narrow neck of Lake Margarador, the largest of the two forest ponds. While walking along this bridge, you may observe ducks, turtles, and frogs swimming in the water or resting along the shoreline. In the spring you may notice tadpoles lining the edge of the pond, as Spring Peepers and Wood Frogs proudly announce the changing seasons.
