If you enjoy a well maintained covered bridge, then the modest drive inland from Yachats is well worth your time. It's private property on the other side of the bridge, so we were respectful and didn't drive through. We walked through, and were impressed with the big wooden beams, and the "olden-days" ambiance. Plus, there is an enormous tree on the hillside near the small parking area that is a sight to see in itself.

Just 9 miles out of Yachats, OR is a small area with an old refurbished covered bridge. It is a small spot, but gorgeous all around. Worth the 15 minute drive.

We visited on a beautiful sunny day and the drive is beautiful. The road, however, is very narrow. It is approximately 7 miles from Yachats. At the end of the bridge there is a farm and that is where it ends. You go no farther. Worth seeing.

The Yachats Covered Bridge is a queen post truss bridge that was built in 1938. It's a beautiful 11 mile drive up Yachats River Road; a nice mixture of rainforest & farm country. Watch for elk along the way. When we visited it was raining and we were able to find agates on the river bed. Cool bridge, definitely worth seeing.

This covered bridge is located about 8 miles up the Yachats River Valley. The last mile or so is on a gravel road, but all the rest of the drive is paved.

You'll leave the tiny town of Yachats and wind your way inland. The road follows the pretty little Yachats River up the valley. It's a pleasant drive through the countryside past farms and ranches.

Turn left at the end of the pavement, and keep going another mile or so. The road dead-ends on the other side of the bridge into private property.

This is one of two covered bridges very near to the ocean and was built in 1938, then rebuilt in 1989. At only 42 feet long, it's one of the shortest covered bridges in Oregon.

We live near here and always enjoy the pleasant drive up the valley.

Located about 10 miles outside of town. Located on a dirt road, but well maintained. The bridge is at the end and many signs say private property. It is in great condition.

A nice little example of Oregon's effort to preserve their historic covered bridges. This one is out of the way & on the way to nowhere. I believe the road ends at private property soon after the bridge. The drive to the bridge from Yachats up Yachats River Road is very nice & a nice change of pace from the beauty of the coast.

Scenic drive along the Yachats River leads to this pretty covered bridge. Photogenic area. Go early in the day before anyone else decides to hit the road. It's best when you're the only ones there. It's a small area and there's no hiking or anything else to explore. Look for the Oreo Cows on the south side of the road about half-way there. (Wish I'd taken a picture of them, too!)

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 dirt road for about 1.5 miles and you cant miss it. The drive up is beautiful and it is such a peaceful and quiet drive. Watch for other drivers as it is quite a narrow road along the gravel/dirt road but it is well worth the trip.

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 the bridge there is a very old spruce tree that many visitors may overlook but it is worth seeing. This beautiful spruce is very very tall with magnificent crown, standing peacefully there for hundreds of years. Such a great bonus on this little relaxing trip.
