“Bridges, Trees, and Trails”

Tyler State Park consists of 1,711 acres in Bucks County. Park roads, trails, and facilities are carefully nestled within the original farm and woodland setting. Neshaminy Creek meanders through the park, dividing the land into several interesting sections. Built in 1874, the Schofield Ford Covered Bridge is the longest covered bridge in Bucks County. In 1991, this county landmark burned. Using authentic materials and methods, a group of concerned citizens from various parts of the county undertook a united effort to rebuild this historic 166-foot, two-span bridge. After five and a half years of planning and fund-raising, the Schofield Ford Bridge Committee organized a partnership of over 200 volunteers, many DCNR employees, skilled construction workers, equipment operators, and Woodhouse Inc. (timber framers) to rebuild the bridge in the summer of 1997. On September 6, 1997, the bridge was dedicated to the volunteers and contributors who made the reconstruction possible. Thanks to their generous efforts, the Schofield Ford Covered Bridge rests on its original stone abutments and center pier, three quarters of a mile from Swamp Road.
