Bus Bridge

A school bus "bridge" is used for a biking and hiking path. The local mayor was responsible for the idea and the implementation of getting the bridge up; he gave us a personal tour of the bridge as well as the surrounding area. It's a cool little stop, and the lights on the bus work! The parking area is right next to it.

The recently completed 8.6-mile Prestonsburg Passage Rail Trail has a unique ride-thru covered bridge, made from the shell of an old school bus, over Caney Creek. A fun photo stop also accessible by car, although cars aren't allowed on the bike trail.
