I heard that there is a pretty covered bridge at DuPont, but I'm not sure of how to get there.

There is a Covered Bridge in DuPont State Forest
by: Bret James Stewart

Karen, you are correct. There is a covered bridge that is the focal point of the aptly named Covered Bridge Trail in DuPont. It is above the popular Triple Falls. There are a few different ways to get to it, all using other trails as the Covered Bridge Trail is not accessible directly from a road. One of these is to go to the Parking Area on Staton Road where the Triple Falls Trail begins. Take Triple Falls Trail to the first junction with the High Falls Trail. Take the High Falls Trail to Covered Bridge Trail. I should have an official trail review of these trails on the site later this year. Feel free to hike the trail yourself and let us know what you think!
