Judah Bridge Hike
- Tuesday, December 6, 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join Jill Vance, Interpretive Naturalist for Monroe Lake with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, for a guided hike to the location where the 1884 Judah Covered Bridge once spanned Salt Creek before being dismantled in 1947. Participants will learn about the history of the bridge, visit the quarry where they got the stone to build the bridge abutments, and also discuss the Judah mill that gave the bridge its name. Recommended for ages 14 and up. Registration required by December 4. 60 minutes (plus travel time)
Location: Due to limited onsite parking, attendees will meet at Paynetown SRA (4850 S. State Road 446, Bloomington) and carpool to the hike starting point (about a 5-minute drive).
