Stopped here on our travels home from Nottingham, PA. Bridge was easy to spot right along the highway on 272. There was a small dirt parking lot along the one side of the bridge that could hold about 4-6 cars. We parked and walked down...More

This covered bridge makes for a great photo opportunity catch this in the beginning of AUTUMN when the leaves are turning on the trees and you will have a great backdrop

The bridge was very pretty and there was a nearby trail which was rather rustic leading back along the water way. It was interesting taking photos inside of the bridge.

This is one of the best things to do when in the area. Not many covered bridges left in Maryland and the family always like going to check it out. Has been restored and has a nice dam below to sit and have lunch.

Well kept by donations and concerned citizens - one of Cecil County's beautiful spots - hoping those that stop and visit appreciate and respect the place - so far they seem to be doing that.

With great historical value, this covered bridge is a must see if in the area. Parking is scarce and it doesn't take more than 10 minutes to view the bridge but it is still a fascinating feature to the area. I wouldn't recommend traveling out...More

I live around the corner from this bridge and was dismayed that around a million dollars was spent "refurbishing" this bridge to nowhere. So, if you want to see a covered bridge that was almost completely rebuilt recently, I guess it's worth it? There are...More

Passed by this bridge on numerous occasions and have stopped on a few to take photos. It sits off MD 272 on the way to Oxford, PA. Very peaceful location to just look at the bridge and pond. It is well maintained.
