“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We can upon this bridge quite by accident the other day on our way to Gettysburg. I didn't know that there were many covered bridges outside of Vermont.
Took lots of photos.

“"Bridging" history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

We went to Sachs Bridge with our guide Miss Betty. It is quite beautiful but there was a group of teenagers huddled in the center loudly discussing some "inappropriate" topics as my children shared. As a result, we did not stay long. I think if they would not have been there it would have been a completely different, much better experience.

“Beautiful by day, spooky by night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

I always go to Sachs bridge every time I visit Gettysburg. I enjoy the peaceful beauty of the bridge and the area around it. Make sure you take a walk down stream to enjoy the sights and sounds of the area. It's worth the extra walk. Also enjoyed doing a little ghost hunting at night in the bridge. Got some really cool pictures. Make sure to take a camera with a good flash.

“Nice Place For Family Pics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Such a pretty little bridge. This would be a great spot for a family picnic, or a walk through the woods. When we were there it was cold and misty, so we didn't stay long, but would have loved to return with nicer weather. As it was, we got some nice photos here. This would also be a nice portrait spot in the fall. Bring a tripod and take your Christmas card picture here. From The Lodges, turn right on Camp Gettysburg Rd, then right on Scott. The turnoff for the bridge is right before the pumping station and Marsh Creek. It isn't well marked, but is worth the effort to find it.
