It's not really a 'destination', but if you're in the area it's a good place to stop for the history of the bridge. I was photographing covered bridges in the area and it's a nice find. You are on someone's property, but can walk around a bit.

This bridge is only a short drive off the main path, but what's the point? When you drive through it, you end up in someone's front yard, private property I think. It is a very short bridge. The biggest problem was that we felt we were probably a nuisance to the locals. I would NOT recommend going here.

Excellent story and lovely trip in and out. Cool to see such a unique place. I love the fact that people cared enough to save this great structure.

It was an interesting site. I wouldn't make it a destination, but if you are going to see the Drift Creek Falls, then this is a nice stop. The bridge is in excellent condition and there are picnic tables nearby. One end is blocked off because it goes onto private property.

It's just a covered bridge over a creek, but the story behind it is very interesting. Has been completely restored and one can feel the history around it.

This little bridge is not to be missed if you like covered bridges. The story behind it is incredible and more than about just saving a bridge. The directions are a little off, i.e., it is not 3.9 miles from US 101. Rather, it is just beyond 4 miles and you should turn south at the road sign that says,... More

This is a beautiful covered bridge about 10 miles east of Lincoln City and a couple of miles off Highway 22. It is well worth the side trip to view this piece of history that was saved by a local family before it could be destroyed and lost forever.

If you really have a thing for covered bridges, then this is a nice photo op. There is a good amount of safe parking so you can pull off the road to take your pictures. You can't drive across the bridge and it is private property on the other side. The best part about going to this bridge is that... More

Looks like this bridge is on private property. You can walk across, but doesn't go anywhere. Beautiful area to see.
