This bridge, the floor inside, even the posts at the ends of the bridge are all covered in grafitti. It is sickening and sad. I was sorry I stopped.

This bridge is graffitied an a replica of the real one that washed away. Not worth your time. Ugly. Graffitied. Fake.

I am thrilled to say that Lyn's great, great grandfather built this bridge. (Will Pardue) it is a beautiful bridge and you should get by to see it. I was sad to see graffiti on the inside of its panels, but I guess someone thought they were making it even more beautiful!

The kids enjoyed walking across the bridge and being able to read about the history. There's also paths down to the water and great opportunities for pictures!

A cute small covered bridge that is right by the highway offers parking, picnicking and fishing in a clear mountain stream. We once were able to rent the house on the opposite side of the road. small waterfall and photo opportunities.

This is a beautiful covered bridge with LOTS of history, just like the whole area. The inside is pretty cool; with a multitude of graffiti all over and if you're into the supernatural, well, you may find what you're looking for! Beautiful spot for pictures or just relax by the waters edge.

If you are a "glass half empty" kind of person, do not visit this spot! Our family stopped here for a picnic and we enjoyed this little bridge and the surrounding area.

Experience history and show the kids what life used to be like. It's a great opportunity to show a hands on bit of history that people usually only see in history books or paintings. It is wonderful that this is being preserved.

Nothing fantastic, they have some picnic benches. We stopped, snapped a few photos, and left. The drive out there is very scenic though and I think it's worth driving out to see while you're in Helen, if for no other reason than to see the surrounding area. The graffiti was disappointing as other reviews have mentioned; if they cleaned it... More
