This bridge is a six panel, riveted Warren through truss. Reportedly, there are plans to convert the abandoned railroad grade to a rail trail.

This bridge was burned in January, but repaired within a week or so:
And two weeks ago the entire trail was designated as a Kansas State Park:
Hopefully this sets a (positive) precedent in Kansas.

I have never tried camping in this area. There might be a KOA nearby. Pomona Lake has some campgrounds as does Melvern. Watch out for chiggers!
If you die, you get free lifetime camping at the nearby cemetery
Is there a public place to camp near here? Thank you.
