The Schofield Covered Bridge in Tyler Park

Tyler State Park has miles of paved trails. The Schofield Covered Bridge crosses the Neshaminy Creek on one of these trails. The bridge was a victim of arson in 1991 and rebuilt in 1997.  The bridge carries the Tyler Park bridle/hiking path over the Neshaminy Creek. Since it is not open to vehicles, you can park in the nearby parking lot and walk about 500 yards to the bridge.
