Went early in the morning. Very quiet. Some trails around the bridge. I believe it’s 90% original. Our ghost tour the night before said down a trail is the witches tree where suspected witches were hung. Also was told confederate soldiers/spies were hung from the bridge rafters.

A local man we met told us of the bridge, it's story, and the ghosts.
Didn't have enough nerve to visit at night. Maybe with a group, I might.
A nice place for pictures.
Try to go to it from the side with the old Civil War Hospital or walk across to see from there too.

My sister and I went to Sachs Bridge in October of 2014 at night and what an experience! Got a ton of orbs in my pictures. If you are in to the paranormal this is a must see. When I did this review it would not let me select the year 2014 when we were there.

Very picturesque historic bridge and tranquil area. We didn't stay long, but it was nice to take a stroll across the bridge and appreciate the beauty of the area.
It is unfortunate to see graffiti in this National Historic place.

Beautiful area. Can't travel across the bridge, but you can park easily and walk around. Lots of history. It dates back to the Civil War. Both troops had crossed it. While we were there, there were people fishing. We figured it is a bit of a hotspot. A little girl caught a Bass!

Went to visit Sachs Covered Bridge while we were visiting in Gettysburg, PA. Beautiful bridge. Very historical bridge. Worth the short drive. Could not visit Gettysburg and not see this beautiful bridge.

The bridge is gorgeous and is perfect for photos! The water underneath it is extremely clam and makes for an excellent backdrop. The was a small waterfall nearby. They only downside was that they are allowing it to be vandalized. There was sharpie all over the bridge despite the signs saying not to. I even saw a camera that is obviously fake or doesn’t get looked over, because there is a lot of “graffiti” on the bridge. It has the potential to be so much more beautiful. You really notice all of it once you get closer to it and walk under it.

The bridge is not too far out of the away from Gettysburg, it is near the Eisenhower Farm and west side of Gettsyburg. Just followed my GPS to the site. There isn't much else besides the bridge, so after a few photos, headed back to Gettysburg

While in Gettysburg, a family member asked to take a picture of the hanging tree. The link brought us to the bridge. Although we didn’t find the tree, it nice to see the covered bridge. A nice scenery to see in the daytime, something you’d see in a horror movie at night. Definitely worth a quick trip while sightseeing the battlefield.

Discovering the covered bridges in PA gave us many fun day-trips in 2020. Sachs Covered Bridge is said to be haunted, as it was crossed by both Union and Confederate soldiers during the Battle of Gettysburg. Built in 1854, 100 feet over Marsh Creek.
