Cedar Covered Bridge Park

Cedar Bridge Gazebo North

Cedar Bridge Park, managed primarily as day-use historic site and picnic area, is home to one of the six remaining covered bridges in Madison County, with Cedar Bridge being the only covered bridge that you can still drive your vehicle through. Cedar Bridge Park is adorned with two gazebo, both providing brick walkways and courtyards bordered by landscape beds of native plants that are often used for weddings.Cedar Bridge, built in 1883, was destroyed by fire in the fall of 2002. Through a ground swell of public support, funds were raised to rebuild Cedar Bridge. The exact replica of Cedar Bridge was built and dedicated on Saturday, October 9th, 2004.


Cedar Bridge Park is located 3 miles northeast of Winterset on Cedar Bridge Trail. From Winterset, travel ½ mile east on State Highway 92, turn north on Cedar Bridge Trail for 1 ¾ mile. Route is marked by standard County Park arrowhead roadside signs on Cedar Bridge Trail.
