McGilvray "Seven Bridges" Road
The 4,000-acre Van Loon State Wildlife Area contains five historic McGilvray arch truss bridges over the channels of the Black River bottom lands. These rare bridges were built between 1905 and 1908. Hiking the paths from one bridge to the next is a wonderful way to see the bottom-lands as well as all of the region's woodpecker species, Bald Eagle, and Red-shouldered Hawks. The vast bottom-lands offer year-round birding opportunities. In spring, high water in the Black River attracts ample excellent waterfowl and warbler viewing from the McGilvray Road bridges trail.
