This bridge appears to be either on, or adjacent to private property, but that isn't a problem. Last time I was there, it was fun to see what may have been an antique mouse-trap. It looked a little like an old tractor.

This was the first covered bridge that my family has been to. It was very pretty and the story around it very interesting. We had just finished the Drift Creek trail and stopped here on the way back to Lincoln city. Would I go out of my way to see this bridge? Probably not, but combining it with the hike... More

We don't search for Covered Bridges so have nothing to compare this to. It was hard to take a good photo. Lots of brush and private property involved.

Very scenic and a good place to take pix. Not worth a special trip unless you are a fan of covered bridges. Further up the road is Drift Creek Falls a nice little hike.

Nice stop to see a well made covered bridge. Children enjoyed seeing the bridge and walking across it.

Easy to get to from the 18-West and nice marker on the road. We didn't go down to the trail head which is about 7 miles further but the bridge is about a mile off the main road. The water sounds so pretty running under the bridge. There were two picnic benches and a bench in the bridge. Peaceful and... More

Bridge was demolished in 1997 and rebuilt. Thats what we learned from board there. The other side of bridge is a privetely owned lawn and we were too shy to go trespass and to look at the bridge from the other side

It was a short drive to this working historic structure. The story of the bridge by Laura Mitchell Sweitz really made the trek worthwhile as it recounted the resolve and faith of the family to dismantle and rebuild the bridge at its new site in 2001.

It's a covered bridge. A historical marker. Great photo opp but no bells and whistles. It isn't part of a larger park or anything. This is more for people who enjoy covered bridges, have a bucket list for that, or who enjoy quick historical jaunts on the way to other activities. There is a residence on the other side. You...

The bridge is a usable bridge. It is in a beautiful setting. Next trip I plan to make it to all the covered bridges in the area
