Engineering Beauty!!

It's off the beaten path, but worth the trek to find it. It's a long span over the creek. We picnicked there. It was quiet and serene.

Visit the bridge in the evening! I was able to get some amazing pictures of both the bridge and the views from the bridge.

The bridge is off the beaten path but worth the trip. It's beautifully restored and the surroundings are quiet. The stream is tranquil

This bridge is absolutely beautiful and the seclusion of the area is welcomed with the insanity that is the crowds on the popular parts of the battlefield. It only takes about 10 minutes to take pictures and enjoy the view and you can be on your way, I highly recommend people see the bridge when they are in town.

I love covered bridges so this was a must see thing on our list to do at Gettysburg. We went at dusk and with the sunny going down it made for some beautiful pictures.

Firstly, the bridge is very hard to find, but once there, it is a beautiful piece of history. Wish we could have went at night to do some paranormal hunting but absolutely loved the beauty of the bridge!

It was worth the time to go see this historic bridge, but it was a too bad there was so much graffiti inside. There was also a small waterfall not far from the bridge.

Just a regular covered bridge. It was raining when we got there and couldn't see much information. Would have enjoyed seeing this on a guided tour.

This covered bridge is beautiful but covered in graffiti. How sad. A popular destination for ghosthunters, we visited both during the day and at night with a tour.
