If you purchase the self guided tour cd ($16.99 and wort it for your trip) at any gift store you will find this bridge on the battle ground tour guide maps. It is beautiful, well kept a nice place for you family photos. (if you have kids that will do that without fighting)

We saw this as part of our ghost tour with Miss Betty. We got to hear lots of stories about the 'most haunted bridge in PA'. We got some really cool pictures and got to see it at sunset. Definitely see.

We stayed at The Gettysburg Campground and went here to fish! Great time and lots of fish for the kids to catch! Beautiful Bridge as well!

We love this area. It's a beautiful old covered bridge--follow the trail along the creek to find a great view of the bridge. We took a blanket and had a picnic. beautiful and peaceful.

This is a little out of the way, but not too difficult to find and ended up being one of my favorite stops we made on our weekend trip.

Not a whole lot to do here but look at the bridge and go for a walk near the stream. Good place to take a blanket and lunch for couples, small kids tend to wonder from parents here and end up in the water.. Lots of turtles here.

A must see for those that are Civil War buffs and are visiting the Gettysburg area. This bridge was rebuilt years ago due to a flood but still carry's the charm it has when General Lee made his escape to the South.
