State Road Entrance – This area of the Park is among the most popular because of its easy access to the river and dramatic views. Unpaved parking presently exists at this gated entrance and should be improved with paved parking. Located directly across from the proposed south trailhead by crossing the State Road Bridge, it is an appropriate location for additional amenities such as picnic facilities, rest rooms and a playground. (See Indian Trails South – Proposed Improvements, following page)
State Road Covered Bridge Project – Ashtabula County is scheduled to replace the existing deficient Ashtabula River/State Road Bridge. It is proposed by the County Engineer to build a covered bridge at this location. Placement of the covered bridge at this site would provide a unique tourist destination at the southern trailhead to Indian Trails and undoubtedly increase visitation. At 605 feet, it would be the longest covered bridge in the United States and be a dramatic addition to the numerous covered bridges already in Ashtabula County.
