This is a very beautiful FREE attraction. It's away from town, not too far that you can go and just enjoy the views and imagine what it may have been like during the days of the battle. We went in the morning and were the only ones there, other than a family doing a little fishing. It's wheelchair accessible and... More

My family arrived and was the only ones around. Got great pics of the bridge and the areas around it. Well maintained and so pretty.

We enjoyed seeing this covered bridge which dates from 1852 (I believe that is correct) and learning the history of it. It is a bit out of town, but worth the effort to find.

As you walk across the bridge in your minds eye try to see the thousands of soldiers that trod along these wooden planks.

Beautiful covered bridge with interesting history. I got cold chills, which might have been due to the damp day, or else it was the GHOSTS. We saw some nice sized bass swimming around in the water, so it could be a good fishing spot too. Great nature respite after touring the battlefield.

Beautiful to photograph even from the road where you can see the reflection in the water. Do watch out for Black Diamond Back Rattlesnakes. We were cautioned that they have been seen sunning on the rocks near the water. Snakes are in this general area amongst rocks especially. Be sure to wear good footwear and just be aware.

Not well advertise - but has some history to it. Love the location and if you don't mind a little hike you can get awesome photos.

The bridge is a great place to stop and listen to the creek gurgle. My husband and I like to take lawn chairs and sit near the trees and watch the birds go by and turtles in the water. We see people fishing from time to time. It's also well known for ghost hunting although we haven't seen anything yet.... More

Wonderful place to visit. Nice place to gather photos of ecto plasm and orbs. Beautiful place Off the main roads in Gettysburg, but worth the effort to find it.

This is a nice short stop to make time for. It has an awesome history behind it and is a short few minute drive off of the battlefield. I would recommend going to see it.
