Dark Hollow Park: Eight Arch Bridge Professional Review and Guide

"This hike is a double whammy: First, it’s a short, easy hike alongside one of the prettiest streams in Bucks County, where you might see fishermen in waders casting about for native trout or a pair of kayakers floating along as the tree-shaded stream sporadically reflects the sun. And second, the trail leads you to an historically significant eight-arch bridge, where the only thing you’ll need is a camera.

As you begin this hike, it may be hard to imagine that you are walking into the cradle of American history, but you are. The original bridge that crossed Neshaminy Creek at the site of the Eight Arch Bridge was built in 1710 to convey travelers on the Old York Road across the creek and on to points north to New York City or south to Philadelphia, as well as all the important cities and villages along the way."
