Tare Creek Covered Bridge 35-28-02#2
This covered bridge was built in 2004 to carry the Maple Highlands Trail of the Geauga County Park District over Tare Creek in Middlefield Township. The bridge was designed by former Ashtabula County Engineer John Smolen, under whose tenure the remaining historic covered bridges were refurbished and several authentic, new covered bridges were built. It is open to pedestrians, bicyclists, equestrians and horse-drawn carriages.
