“A Delightful Historical Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

This little covered bridge was rescued from destruction at its original site south of Lincoln City, OR, and reconstructed about 8 miles north on Bear Creek. It sits in a small public park on private property. There is a sign on Hwy 18 about 4 miles east of Hwy 101 directing visitors to the bridge. It is easy to find about a mile south on Bear Creek Road. It is an easy drive right to the bridge.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Although the covered bridge and its history were engaging, we discovered there was no obvious place to park. Then, a dog on the property raced towards us barking. We were spooked until we realized that he just wanted to play; however he would not go away, even when we got back in our car. He pounced on the window until we honked the horn and gently pulled away. Consequently, we could not view the bridge and information sign. Left very disappointed.

“Pretty Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is actually on private property, but they allow you to walk over the bridge. There is a religious story posted there that is kind of odd, but interesting. Also, they have a super friendly dog who would have gladly come home with me :)
