Pisgah Bridge (Baker Tract)

Randolph County

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
