Little Buffalo State Park

Little Buffalo State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Bring your camera on this hike. It starts out on an 82-foot-long covered bridge—and not just any covered bridge.This is a Burr Truss, patented by Theodore Burr of Connecticut, architect and builder of the longest single-arch bridge in the world (also in Pennsylvania). How about a tour of a restored nineteenth-century gristmill, with one of the largest waterwheels east of the Mississippi?

Take a self-guided nature tour; then walk the path of a peculiar narrow-gauge railroad on your way to an inlet, where you might see a little green heron, an egret, or a blue-winged teal. End your hike at the Blue Ball Tavern, built in 1811, now the local historical society headquarters."
