Rain or shine, the best place to view this merry falls is from the shelter of a carefully preserved covered bridge. The best thing about this little walk is the carefully restored 1879 covered bridge that provides a sheltered viewing platform over Beecher Creek. Constructed by farmer Arad Copeland to give his livestock an easy route to pastures beyond the creek, the 35-foot-long bridge is the only queenpost truss structure in New York State—a construction technique that uses two supporting truss posts instead of just one to hold up the roof.
