Frederick County's covered bridges are nothing special as far as covered bridges go, but if you like covered bridges, they're certainly worth a look. All 3, Utica, Loy's Station & Roddy Road are basically in a line north to south and can be seen in a short time at even a leisurely pace. Loy's Station has a nice park adjacent... More

Lovely visit any time of year but expecially in the fall. Not far from Summer Creek Farm, Frederick County's largest certified organic vegetable farm.

Ample parking with a park and jungle gym area for families. The location is beautiful. The stream is running with clear water and some fish. Fun stop and beautiful area to see 3 covered bridges. This is the largest of the 3. Bring a picnic and hang out a bit under the trees at the park Travelationship.com

This is a must stop. It is so beautiful and scenic. It is so relaxing and quaint. It is a great place to take photos. I am from Florida and there are no covered bridges. I love this covered bridge. It looks similar to the colors of a Farmhouse.

This is a quaint little get away from the busy life we live. There's a wonderful covered bridge that crosses over a large creek perfect for swimming and exploring which is popular among the locals and I must say I've met a few out-of-town guests as well. There's a small playground and a perfect place for taking pictures and having... More

The best of the three bridges in the area. It is accessible for pictures from both sides of the stream. Nice picnic area with playground for kids. It does have a portable restroom facility that was the cleanest I have seen. Get the directions to the three covered bridges in the area and take the time to see all three.... More

This was a fantastic place for a birthday party for our 4-year old son. We rented the one small picnic shelter available for $55. This gets you the shelter for the entire day and there is a number to call if someone else is occupying it and won't leave. Frederick County Parks and Recreation are supposed to post a sign... More

A great spot for a picnic. Children love wading in the stream or playing on the playground. It's in a quiet, rural setting, and the historic covered bridge (often a subject for photographers or artists) adds a lot of charm.
