Only go if you like covered bridges.

While quite quaint, it has graffiti all over it, which takes away from it's charm. Also, a lot of locals are there swimming in the creek.

Not worthy - a lot of grafitti - run down... I would recommend to only those who want to see a "covered bridge."

Pretty setting, As always lately, people not respecting it's history had written graffiti on the inside of the bridge. You have to watch close or you will miss it.

This area has gone backwards since we last visited in 2007! Graffiti on the bridge, carpark has not been cared for. All in all I would not recommend a visit.

Short covered bridge on the side of the road. The advantage is it is free and easy to access for a picture or two. The weirdly formed trees beside the bridge puts a "twist" on the trip.

We almost missed it! We were leaving Helen heading to Tiger, GA. We stopped to take pics. There was a family swimming in the creek below and there was a picnic table. The bridge is cool, but it is sad people have felt the need to cover the inside of the bridge in graffiti.

This was my second trip to Alpine Helen, GA and the Stovall Mill Covered Bridge again was a must-see. The inside of the bridge is covered in graffiti but even with that it is a beautiful sight.

Went to visit this and was disappointed to find the graffiti sprawled over this piece of local history. It is beautiful but spoiled by a few thoughtless people.

The covered bridge is a great piece of Georgia history. It's absolutely beautiful, however I sincerely wish (whoever is in charge of its upkeep) would take better care of it. The graffiti everywhere is a major bummer.

The bridge was so nice, but it's a shame that people have to vandalize these things that have been around for so long. No respect for anything of sentimental value.
