Bridge lies about 9 miles east of Yachats. The last 1.5 miles are graded gravel. The drive up is along the Yachats river, with forest, pasture, and a few homes. The bridge has been completely rebuilt. In fact, the red paint still smelled fresh on 1/30/15. It's a beautiful simple design. The creek has seasonal steelhead and salmon and fishing... More

Having visited all 51 covered bridges of Oregon, this one is tucked away on the hills above the city of Yachats. The short drive is worth the time if not for the a different look at Yachats. Note, most covered bridges are easy to see in Oregon, the one that take a little more time are those that must be... More

Nice enough drive. Bridge itself is very small compared to covered bridges in the midwest and east coast. But if you've never seen one, you can see how they're built and all that.

Drove up to the bridge to find it nearly torn down. Seems as though they are putting a new bridge in. But not too sure.

My husband and I discovered this bridge as we were wandering around my favorite city ----Yachats. We gave many pictures of us at this bridge. The countryside is spectacular.

Just a few miles inland from Yachats is the North Fork Yachats Covered Bridge, a wonderful short side trip off the main drag well worth the few minutes it takes to get there :)

This trip, which took less then 1-1/2 hours roundtrip, was well worth the drive. It was through a lovely valley, with farms and cattle to catch your eye. The "famous" Oreo cows were out and close enough to take a picture. Waiting to see the covered bridge was well worth the trip. It was built in 1938, which is the... More

A pleasant curvy drive thru a river valley. The final mile is on a gravel one-lane road, ending at the cute little bridge. If you're looking to kill 30 minutes and rest your legs after days of hiking, this is an easy way to do it.

We love the look and the History of the covered Bridges , Barnes and Light Houses!. They just don't make them any more like that.

It's about 50 feet long, and ends up in someone's yard. The road to it isn't the best kept, and the floor of the bridge is slippery when wet. If you want to complete your collection of photos of Oregon covered bridges, it is very photogenic.
