Alum Cove


Alum Cove


This trail leads to an impressive natural rock bridge, 13O feet long and 12 feet thick. You can walk around, over and under the bridge, explore some small caves, wade in a cool creek, and in the wet season, enjoy the splendor of waterfalls behind the bridge. Take Highway 7 south from Jasper, turn west on Highway 16 toward the town of Deer. At about one mile, turn right on Forest Road #1206, go three miles to a sign, turn right again and you’ll be at the beginning of the trail.
