The Amnicon River, not far from the Minnesota / Wisconsin border, offers Wisconsin paddlers a group of challenging class II and III rapids. The Amnicon State Park, southeast of Superior, features the Amnicon River, picturesque falls and a handsome covered bridge. This unusual bowstring bridge, designed by Charles M. Horton, was mostly likely built in the late 1800s. Horton promised his new design as being light-weight, durable, and easy to assemble, requiring no large scale equipment or expensive tools. No one knows the extent of the Horton design, but five of his style bridges remain today.
