When we got to Bedford we drove the bridge tour route. Saw lots of old bridges and the tour book directions were easy to follow. Only disappointment was that the trees were not turning yet.

We took the self guided tour starting at Bedford Village. The directions were very easy to follow. The tour included 9 covered bridges and a stool at Gravity Hill! It took us about 2 hours, but was well worth it!

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.
