The Baker Tract

The Baker Tract at the Pisgah Covered Bridge was protected via conservation easement in 2002.  The Baker's donated an easement on nearly one acre that contains a portion of the trail and picnic area at the Bridge site.  The site also provides a riparian buffer along the West Prong of the Little River.  

"Randolph County's Pisgah Covered Bridge is one of only two that still survive in the state of North Carolina; and the only one easily accessible by the public.  It is a 54-wooden structure that was built over a branch of the Little River, 10 miles southwest of Asheboro, in 1911.  Original documentations shows that the bridge was constructed by J.J. Welch for a total cost of $40.  The bridge is considered both a state and county historical and cultural icon." --Randolph County Tourism Development Authority
