There was only one other couple there when we were so we were able to soak up the historic atmosphere and get some good photos. The covered bridge gave the feeling of stepping back in time; just a very relaxing way to spend an hour or two.

This place was free of trash and debris. The bridge has a rich history used by both Confederate and Union Soldiers. We were told by a friendly local in town. You cannot drive across the bridge and there are two ways to get to it (one on each end). We turned off on Roberta Way to get there. We went... More

This bridge is a must for any fan of covered bridges. It is a beautiful reminder of days gone by. During the day you can walk through and around it. When warm, the grounds are suitable for a picnic. After dark it becomes a serious ghost hunting location. Many people have seen a swinging torso from an unfortunate hanging or... More

Very cool and great Photo op. Take Marsh Rd instead of WaterWorks because it floods with all the rain . I went there in addition to Gettysburg but totally worth the detour - not many covered bridges left

The Sachs Covered Bridge is a short side trip from West Confederate Avenue. Worth a visit, especially in the winter when the snow against the red makes for striking photographs.

Really good example of a covered bridge. Write up very informative. We chose a lovely summers day so good photo opportunities.

We love visiting Sach's Bridge. We've visited during different seasons, and they are all beautiful, but beware, visiting around Halloween can be very creepy, we've encountered some strange voices on our audio recordings.

I always wanted to see a covered bridge. I'd seen them in films & always fascinated with them. So when we saw this one was so close to where we were we just had to take a look. This was a good example.

Having seen this bridge in books and movies, it was a must see on my trip. I majestically spans the water, quietly in the woods, waiting for you to come and enjoy. You can stand on the bridge that both Confederate and Union soldiers used during the battle of Gettysburg and almost hear the horses hooves clomping across.
