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.
