The area now known as Tyler State Park was once the homestead and farm of George F. Tyler and his wife. The 1,711-acre park is a popular place for horseback riding. The park also has numerous picnicking and recreational opportunities, but one of the biggest draws is the longest covered bridge in Bucks County. This hike takes you to and through the Schofield Ford Covered Bridge. The bridge was originally built in 1874, but unfortunately was lost in a fire in 1991. It was rebuilt and reopened in 1997, and informational signs near the bridge explain its storied history. The parking lot is off Swamp Road. The entrance to the trail is not well marked, but you’ll see the opening across the parking lot.
