|Known as one of the most picturesque state parks in Georgia, Watson Mill Bridge contains the longest covered bridge in the state, spanning 229 feet across the South Fork River. Built in 1885 by Washington (W.W.) King, son of freed slave and famous covered-bridge builder, Horace King, the bridge is supported by a town lattice truss system held firmly together with wooden pins. At one time, Georgia had more than 200 covered bridges; today, less than 20 remain.|
We will explore the 7 miles of trails in Watson Mill State Park.
There are a few loop trails in this scenic state park. Bring a camera. We will be stopping along the way to take photos. This is an explorer hike. We will attempt to explore all 7 miles of trails.
