The Magic of Midwest Covered Bridges
This small covered walking bridge is tucked away on a walking path around quiet Lake Atwood, about 30 miles north of Colby and I-70 in the northwest corner of Kansas. The Lake Atwood Ten Mile race, held since 1972, draws running enthusiasts to the area each summer.
