Friends of the Locust Fork River has a booth at the Covered Bridge Festival and organizes the Swann Bridge River Walk. Led by Sam Howell, the group will walk along the Locust Fork River from Swann Covered Bridge to Powell Falls. Easy to moderate hike. We will meet Saturday, October 27 at 9:30 am at Swann Covered Bridge in Cleveland. Wear comfortable walking shoes, and dress for the weather. Bring your camera, water, and a brown bag lunch. Please submit one registration per adult/family so that each adult pre-signs the waiver electronically.
