The Aiken Road Bridge

The Aiken Road Bridge over Floyds Fork is on the Kentucky Inventory of Historic Resources.  In the Spring, Summer and Fall, beneath the bridge, it is not unusual to see fish and spiny soft shell turtles or "leather backs", as they are known locally.  tp_aikenroad1.tif (650064 bytes)There are also frogs, freshwater mussels, and interesting aquatic plants at this location.  Besides the bridge stands a 67 1/2" diameter sycamore that may be the largest tree anywhere along Floyds Fork in Jefferson County.  Nearby are other noteworthy trees including a 40" diameter American elm, a 40+" diameter white ash and a 42" diameter sycamore.

Continue down Aiken Road.  Turn right onto Johnson Road.
