A Covered Bridge and a General Store
On Sunday, July 10, we departed Bald Eagle State Park en route Worlds End State Park and, ultimately, Wellsboro PA. The GPS took us through picturesque Forksville PA.
According to a Wikipedia article, the borough of Forksville is the home of 145 people (as of the 2010 census), the Forksville General Store, and the Forksville Covered Bridge.
Forksville Covered Bridge and the Forksville General Store
We drove over the covered bridge and parked at the General Store.
We could see the Forksville United Methodist Church from the General Store.
The Forksville Covered Bridge spans Loyalsock Creek.
It is a Burr arch truss covered bridge.
The Forksville Covered Bridge was built in 1850 and is 152 feet 11 inches in length.
The Forksville General Store & Restaurant was built in 1851.
The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. The general store is stocked with basic necessities such as “groceries, camping supplies, bag ice, bundles of fire wood, and novelty items such as pure maple syrup, local honey, old~fashioned candies, coffee mugs, souvenir shirts, post cards, magnets,etc.” This would have been an excellent stop for a meal. However, we ate breakfast before leaving The Nature Inn at Bald Eagle, and we were too early for lunch.
We departed Forksville, en route World’s End State Park, around 10:00 am. Our visit to Worlds End State Park will be the subject of a separate blog post.
