Cool place to see, but only for 15 minutes..a beautiful creek runs under it....but that's all there is to see.

We saw this bridge on our way to a hike... it is very pretty and it is a usable bridge. Lots of photo ops in the area....

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.

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.

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.
