Rock River Trail Road Trip Tip | Fort Atkinson

One of the most scenic covered bridges in Wisconsin is Jefferson County, near Fort Atkinson, WI.
This red covered bridge is part of the Glacial River Trail, a 39-mile on- and off-road bike trail between Watertown and Janesville (it connects with the Glacial Drumlin State Trail north of Jefferson).
South of Fort Atkinson, the off-road paved trail follows an old railroad bed along Highway 26. The bridge is a nod to that past and was designed to look like a train caboose, complete with a cupola on top; some of the hardware used to build it came from the old railroad. It was built in 2000, and the wood came from a local barn that was built in 1906.
