While visiting Bedford my wife and I spent the day doing the Covered Bridge tour with a Gravity Hill detour. It was quite enjoyable locating and photographing each one we encountered. We also experienced Gravity Hill which was a real kick!

We followed the guide to the letter. No problems and really enjoyed the way it was laid out. The old covered bridges were lovely. One had a lot of graffiti on it but it was still charming. Most of the bridges were still being used...More

The Bedford County website has information. You can also get a printed brochure at the Visitor's Center in Bedford. The Visitor's Center also has a book with information on covered bridges throughout Pennsylvania.
