Historic Covered Bridge

This historic covered bridge is worth the drive from Yachats, up the Yachats River Road, about 8 miles. There are places to hike, picnic and sightsee nearby.

This is one of the few remaining covered bridges and is a bit hard to find! Missed the River Road a few times! To get there- find the little strip mall and head east on the Yachats River Road for about 8 miles. When you reach the T junction (only real turnoff on the entire road) turn left down the... More

Kind of way out of town but on a lovely river road. It is worth the 20mins it takes to get here from town. Once you reach it you have to turn right around as the road dead ends into a house. If you are into covered bridges here you go.

We visited this bridge for the first time about 15 years ago on the recommendation of our B and B host. In the area again today for the first time since then, we decided to go for a second look. Less than 10 miles off the 101, it's easy to find and the drive is pleasant - through the Yachats... More

We've visited 43 of the 50 covered bridges in Oregon. This bridge is about 9 miles east from Yachats. Nice drive along the Yachats river road. Easy to find.

East Yachats is fun to explore, especially to locate an old wood bridge. There are several walking trails, bath rooms included at the trail head, in forested areas. Take your hiking boots.

We've visited three covered bridges around Yachats and Florence, OR. We know that more exist and we plan on visiting them some day. The drive to this bridge is easy and goes through a scenic rural area. It's not a long drive from Yachats. This is the only red-painted bridge that we've seen so far.

After driving several miles on a sometimes unpaved road, we got to the bridge. It has recently been repainted a brick red and it looks cheesy. It doesn't look like it has been there since the 1800's, that's for sure. Even taking into consideration the renovation that was done in 1989, the recent paint job ruined it.

This is a very charming place to visit on a lazy afternoon. The winding road along the Yachats river is a nice contrast to the coasltine. Small farms and ranches fill the landscape offering insights into local community life. The bridge itself is very well preserved and fits perfectly in the surroundings. On the left hand side as you approach... More

In Yachats take a country ride to see this little cover bridge. The road takes you along beautiful country farms where you will see Oreo Cows..There are also Roosevelt Elks glazing in the fields. We did not see any but they are there. Not a long drive from the main road but a must.
