There are three outstanding and well preserved covered bridges in this area, and Loy's Station is the largest. Another is less than a mile from the Shamrock Restaurant on Rt. 15.This one at Loy's Station has a beautiful picnic ground, outside rest room facilities, and is a favorite of photographers and artists because it is in the open and accessible...

Loy's Station Covered bridge is located beside a pristine park and is very relaxing. A few more miles and you will find the Roddy Road Covered Bridge too! Great route for cars & bicycles.

We had a great afternoon. The kids splashed and played in the waters of the creek, and the breeze was pleasant. It was very pastoral. Such a great place to take photo's too. We stayed for a couple of hours. You should pack a picnic and bring the camera.

By far this is one of the nicest as it has a little park surrounding it. Bring some charcoal and hamburgers and hotdogs and have a nice cookout. Bring your kids, their bathing suits, a bucket and some nets and you can catch crayfish all day long as you wade and play in the creek.

As someone else pointed out to me, there are three covered bridges in the Thurmont, Rocky Ridge area that are just off Highway 15, and within about 11 miles of each other. There is a nice link, with addresses for Utica Mills Bridge on Utica Road, Loy's Station Briidge on Old Federick Road and Roddy Road Bridge on Roddy Road.... More

Driving the Frederick County's Covered Bridge Tour creates opportunities to see small towns, beautiful scenery and of course, the 3 covered bridges. Roddy Road Bridge, Loy's Station Bridge and Utica Mills Bridge (currently undergoing repairs). You can get some really great pictures of these bridges or just stop in and place yourself in the time period of the mid to... More

There are three Covered Bridges in Frederick County, just north of the city of Frederick, and a bit south of Gettysburg. The day that we traveled to see them, two of the three were under repair. But if this sort of thing appeals to you at all, it is clearly worth a very short drive to see one, two, or... More

There are not many covered bridges remaining, and this is an excellent example of one. If you are in the neighborhood, it is nice to see some American history.

This is a great little place to have a picnic lunch and if you like covered bridges, there are 3 beautiful ones all within a 20 minute drive. Note: The address for Loy's Station is wrong. The correct address is 13506 Old Frederick Road. If you go north on 15 from Frederick, I'd recommend seeing them in this order: Utica... More

Frederick County's covered bridges are nothing special as far as covered bridges go, but if you like covered bridges, they're certainly worth a look. All 3, Utica, Loy's Station & Roddy Road are basically in a line north to south and can be seen in a short time at even a leisurely pace. Loy's Station has a nice park adjacent... More
