This was our first time visiting the Sachs Bridge and will not be the last. It's a beautiful bridge and with the river flowing makes it very peaceful and serene. The only drawback is the bridge has been vandalized a little which is somewhat disheartening.

Off the beaten path- have been to Gettysburg all of my life & had never heard about this treasure! Lovely bridge, dam, pond, nature trails. Fishing allowed, no swimming.

My daughter and her husband went just before dark and came back with pictures that were unbelievable. Pictures taken one right after another came out alternately clear and focused and the next ones were misty and foggy. Go figure!

This is a gorgeous structure from the outside, it is a shame that people feel the need to deface this piece of history on the inside. Still, it is one of the prettiest covered bridges I have seen.

Love this place. Tours are very professional and they know a lot of history here. They are also fun! There is a lot of paranormal activity here especially at the Sachs bridge. My favorite place to go!

The bridge is a must see. The area is beautiful and could have been serene if there was not a ghost tour coming through. My husband I visited at night and it was very quiet until the cars unloaded and flashlights were in our eyes and people were like vultures.

One of our favorite places to visit when we come to Gettysburg. Very clean and relaxing. Would be nice if they had some benches to sit on facing the water. There is a wall that you can sit on but difficult to face the water and low to the ground if you are handicap. They also have trails you can... More

Visit each time we come to Gettysburg. My husband was feeding the ducks who appeared along the banks looking for a treat. Know the history of the bridge and about the ghost stories! Some visits I have gotten orbs on my pictures. None this time. Once visiting someone was having a wedding at the bridge. It's a beautiful setting! Worth... More
