After hiking to Drift Creek Falls, it's a great side trip to view the bridge. It's an easy and short trip as you head back to town.

Condemned, saved, moved. The backstory is readily available online & adds to its charms. It's in a lovely, wooded setting 1 mile south of Highway 18 & only a few miles east of Lincoln City. Definitely well worth a very short side trip to view...More

Totally beautiful wooden bridge. With the falling leaves I could have been back in Maine. The creek running under the bridge was tinkly and beautiful sounding. Thank goodness this bridge was saved by a great couple. Worth the visit.

Highway 101 to Highway 18 (five miles)' then about 4 or 5 miles on Hwy 18. There's a sign indicating where to turn, then another mile or so. Easy peach. Enjoy.
