A cursed mansion, a sparkling lake, and a covered bridge—you’ll find all of these in this jewel of a park. Glimmerglass State Park has a great deal to recommend it—from a historic covered bridge to an estate that holds what was once the largest mansion in America—but neither of these things are easily seen from the Sleeping Lion Trail. You will pass the covered bridge as you drive into the park from the entrance; watch for it on your right (signs will point you in its direction). You can drive up to the bridge and park if you’d like to get a closer look, and a trail takes you through the bridge and loops through another pleasant section of the park.
