If you are looking for something to do on a mild winter day, you might consider checking out the new bridge on the Yellow Rock Trail. The structure was just completed by Progressive Trail Design, a local trail design and construction company. The bridge was built in the style of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).
One of the philosophies of the CCC was to have the built environment blend in with the natural environment, and the new bridge does exactly that. Instead of using square dimensional lumber, the structure is built of logs and half timbers, a perfect example of depression era craftsmanship.
Start at the scenic overlook off Highway 170, and hike about 100 yards down the trail to see the new bridge. Once you are there you might as well walk the whole trail.
Below are some pictures of the bridge via Progressive Trail Design:
