What a wonderful, picturesque location! So peaceful and relaxing. Our first time there! The leaves had just started to change and I bet when they are in full autumn color it must be breathtaking!

On our last trip to Gettysburg, we decided to go with a paranormal investigator and walk the roads with her while getting evp ratings and the like. Not sure how authentic all this was, but at the same time it was interesting. Kept hearing one voice over and over as we were asking questions. While walking back to the bridge... More

When we arrived, there was only a man and his son there. Very peaceful setting. We could definitely imagine life at the time of the Civil War. As we were leaving 2 more cars arrived. Found out from them that it's a popular place for a wedding ceremony!

Architecturally interesting bridge. A little hard to find, but the area is peaceful and quiet. Good place to go for a hike. Supposedly haunted and popular night spot for ghost hunting. Boo!

This is more than just a covered bridge. It is a wealth of history. To imagine all that happened there is awesome but to see the actual bridge, its construction and design is great. The area around it is peaceful and you can walk around some on some trails.

It was really hard to find. But well worth it. It's absolutely beautiful. They need to post better signs on how to get to it.

Not to many covered bridges around. It's a little hard to find but worth the quick trip from downtown. Great location if you like to take pictures. There is historical information provided at the site.

Hard to find, must have a local give you some directions, but well worth a stop. Historic dating from 1852. Well kept and a nice surprise on our trip.
