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.

Nice place to see a piece of days gone by. This bridge was used by confederates on their retreat from gettysburg and it is rumored that they hanged three deserters from the battle here. Supposedly haunted, a favorite of ghosthunters.

This is worth seeing and the National Park patrols it. Some of the Union units crossed it coming into town pre-battle and the Army of Northern Virginia retreated across it after the battle. Adults and children alike will find it interesting. Get directions from someone. It is hard to find.

Sachs covered bridge is a must see when in Gettysburg. It's close to the battlefield and museums. The weather was perfect the day we visited and the bridge reflected in the water so beautifully. Very quiet & serene. We took a short walk around the area and captured a lot of fabulous photos. There is a small stone lot to... More

I love covered bridges to begin with so of course Sachs Bridge was a "must" visit site. Nice place to take a stroll and imagine all those soldiers crossing it. Didn't see any ghosts the day we were there, but it's said that it's haunted. If I were a believer of haunting, I would think the entire area would be... More

Interesting place to stop by and take some nice photographs. Have heard that it is haunted, but have heard that about all of Gettysburg.

Great place to stop and reflect on what happened in Gettysburg. We stopped as the sun was setting. Just beautiful.
