Country Roads Take Me Home ...

“Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong …
And driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday …”
     ~ “ Take Me Home, Country Roads”

Geiger’s Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge in North Whitehall Township. It is a 112-foot-long Burr Truss bridge, constructed in 1860. It has vertical plank siding and an entry portal of stepped square planks. It crosses the Jordan Creek and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It can be accessed from The Covered Bridge Trail of  Trexler Nature Preserve.
