We've visited three covered bridges around Yachats and Florence, OR. We know that more exist and we plan on visiting them some day. The drive to this bridge is easy and goes through a scenic rural area. It's not a long drive from Yachats. This is the only red-painted bridge that we've seen so far.

After driving several miles on a sometimes unpaved road, we got to the bridge. It has recently been repainted a brick red and it looks cheesy. It doesn't look like it has been there since the 1800's, that's for sure. Even taking into consideration the renovation that was done in 1989, the recent paint job ruined it.

This is a very charming place to visit on a lazy afternoon. The winding road along the Yachats river is a nice contrast to the coasltine. Small farms and ranches fill the landscape offering insights into local community life. The bridge itself is very well preserved and fits perfectly in the surroundings. On the left hand side as you approach... More

In Yachats take a country ride to see this little cover bridge. The road takes you along beautiful country farms where you will see Oreo Cows..There are also Roosevelt Elks glazing in the fields. We did not see any but they are there. Not a long drive from the main road but a must.

Beautiful forest views getting to the bridge from Yachats. Please park before the covered bridge as it is private property just beyond and the road ends. Take the road back the other way by going towards the Visitor Center for Cape Perpetua if you dare. Some narrow gravel sections of winding road. And then around the corner you meet a... More

Nice little drive out into the country along farms and fields of oreo cows. You feel like your going back to simpler times. Lovely location. Could use a picnic table for those who want to stop for and stay awhile to enjoy the beauty.

It is in better shape than what you'll find in Vermont. Since it was raining while we were there, I can attest to the fact that the roof does not leak. Once you clear the bridge, there is no further travel on that road, so if there is a place to park before you enter the bridge, take it.

If you are in the Yachats area, don't miss visiting this recently rebuilt covered bridge out on the Yachats River Road. It is a bit of a drive (literally at the end of the road), but the shade and the sound of the running water is soothing to the soul. A great place to stop and reflect.

We thought this was well worth the trip. Nice scenery on the way from Hwy 101. The bridge looks like it was just rebuilt and freshly painted. We drove through it just to do it but there isn't much road on the other side. No problem for us to park and turn around before the bridge. Last 1 1/2 miles... More

This is not a principal destination, but if you are staying in or near Jacksonville and fancy a drive to the Appleton Valley wineries, then this bridge is a pleasant addition to your drive. It isa short detour off the main Jackonsville to Grants Passage road and well worth the effort.
