Just why there is a bridge to nowhere stretching accross the Blowout Arm of Detroit Lake is widely unknown. And while the purpose of this construction may be a mystery, the beauty of this hidden trail cannot be questioned. The trail itself is about a quarter of a mile long, and it winds through a lush forest enviroment. During spring and early summer the trail is covered in tiny wildflowers; as summer progresses the trail remains surrounded by ferns and moss. During late summer and early fall the trail becomes a haven for rough-skinned newts, and it is not unusual to find 20 or more in a single day. Remember that a newt's skin is posionus, however, so please look and not touch.
