Tucked away in the heart of northern Missouri is a beautiful covered bridge that dates back to 1868.

Pershing State Park is already gorgeous with a diverse landscape featuring a wet prairie near a meandering stream and a bottomland forest but the bridge makes it extra special. Add vibrant fall colors and this covered bridge hike is simply out-of-this-world.
