if you've seen one covered bridge you've seen them all. This one is old and very quaint looking but nothing to get too excited about. The country around it is pretty and Drift creek which the bridge spans has a run of fall Chinook salmen to view.

About 4 miles east of Hwy 101 on Hwy 18 is the turn-off to Drift Creek Covered Bridge and 8 slow, curvy miles later Drift Creek Falls. This small, cute bridge is photogenic and has an interesting history. Park, walk over the bridge, and maybe picnic in the pretty park nearby.

This was a very nice little surprise off of the main road. It has been restored beautifully and is on private property. You must park on the side of the road as it does not want people driving on it, but you are allowed to view and walk on it. Nice little stop and worth seeing if you enjoy covered... More

This covered bridge is well worth the short drive from Hwy 18. Be sure to read the story about the couple who saved it. The story is in a binder at the entrance to the bridge.

A cute quaint covered bridge, but definitely not historical as it was recently constructed. Oregon has many covered bridges with lots of history. This one is conveniently located on the drive from Salem to Lincoln City.

I was on my way to the coast and saw the sign. I am very glad I turned. This is a very short distance off the main road. It has been restored beautifully and is on private property but the public is allowed to view and walk on it .

I love covered bridges and will go out of my way when I know there is one. Well we did go out of our way a little. Worth it. It is on private property. When these people realized this bridge was going to be demolished they stepped in and saved it. Still intact but moved to their property so all... More

This Review is for Drift Creek Day Hike - Hwy101/Drift Creek Road/Drift Creek Camp Road. Despite the nearly 11 miles of on a windy paved road, the drive was beautiful and the easy day hike was well worth it. The road was lined with gorgeous Douglas Fir trees that could be seen for miles. There is a $5 fee so... More

I am an amateur photographer and love my covered bridges. When I heard there was one in this area I had to of course make to trek to this location. It is very well preserved and it a very picturesque area.

Have never met a covered bridge I didn't enjoy and this was no exception, not the greatest of them all but glad i have seen it.
