Mohican Sites to Visit

Two sites stood out to me for people to visit. If you are looking for a great place to stop and eat a packed lunch, look no further than the area around the covered bridge (pictured below). The covered bridge itself is a sight to see, but it also gives great views of the Clearfork – Mohican River. Picnic tables on flat ground adjacent to the river make this a great place to stop for a bite to eat.

Another great place to visit at Mohican State Park is the Clearfork Gorge Overlook. Not far from the above mentioned covered bridge, the overlook gives a great view of the valley below. Be sure to stop by these two places when you visit Mohican!
