Trail of Seven Bridges Description

Despite its name, many of the bridges on this trail have long disappeared. The trail is a multi-use route that follows an OHV trail up to a viewpoint and back. The scenery is great in the clearings, however you will encounter mountain bikes and motorized vehicles throughout your journey. This full day effort is the type of hike that is perfect for people who prefer a steady grade, no technical terrain, and an easy to follow trail. You will gain elevation steadily at gradual grade along this route. Enjoy the views of nearby Andy Good Peak and Mount Ptolemy before returning the way you came.
