There’s a lot to discover in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. This vast Wisconsin forest covers a huge area of Northern Wisconsin — you’ll know you’ve arrived when you start seeing bald eagles and your cell phone stops working. The forest holds a lot of surprises, including a covered bridge that’s tucked away deep in the wilderness. The Smith Rapids Covered Bridge is a scenic spot well-worth discovering – and when you arrive at the bridge, you’ll see it holds a little secret, too.

If you’re staying the Northwoods the bridge is a nice excuse for a forest drive. You’d find it about 20 minutes east of Park Falls or 30 minutes west of Minocqua. If you’re a bridge hunter, gas up your car: here are seven more covered bridges you can find in Wisconsin.
