Larwood Covered Bridge spans Crabtree Creek. It was built in 1939.
The Larwood Wayside was developed beside the bridge and is a great place for a picnic. Picnic tables and a bathroom are easily accessible. You will be treated with views of both the Larwood Covered Bridge and an abandon waterwheel on the south side of Crabtree Creek.
Here you will see Roaring River and Crabtree Creek merge. This is an unusual event because part of Crabtree Creek flows into Roaring River before Roaring River merges into Crabtree Creek. This occurrence creates very interesting currents and is worth taking the time to enjoy.
