Description

Bridge Trail was originally named for a picturesque bridge over a ravine located along the trail. Due to deterioration, the original bridge has been replaced with a new one. Bridge Trail is within the Bennett Spring State Park. This singletrack trail leaves from behind the nature center and ends at the road, briefly overlapping with the Whistle Trail next to the stone bridge and the trout hatchery.

Keep an eye out for ticks and chiggers!

Flora & Fauna

Wildlife seen along the trail includes deer, squirrels, many kinds of birds, insects, spiders and many ticks and chiggers in the summer months.
