Cove Lake Spillway Bridge
Posted February 19, 2007, by Fred Garcia (fandsgarcia [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge 18 Feb 2007 about 4:00 pm. A mild winter day to be in the Ozark Nat'l Forest, after stopping at Mt. Magazine State Park. About 1" of water was flowing down the spillway, but there was a dry margin on either side to walk along. North approach is on a sharp curve. A small parking lot on the north end allows access to trail for hiking the perimeter of Cove Lake.
