We took a detour on our way to Gettysburg to visit the bridge. If you're coming from PA on the west I'd recommend stopping! We got there in the late afternoon amd it was the perfect time to catch a mirror image of the bridge.

The Sachs Bridge is a very historic bridge which Lee used when leaving Gettysburg. It is beautifully kept up.

My fiancee and I went to Sachs covered bridge on 10/30/21 definitely an experience I took pictures and filmed around the area.. if your into the paranormal you definitely should go at night !!! I caught something on video. I heard a noise in the woods I jumped and turned my camera to the area I saw the noise I uploaded the photo so you can see it. Definitely an eerie feeling when you go there.

Our visit to the covered bridge was a nice part of our day. This beautiful red covered bridge was where the confederates made their retreat. Its a great place to take pictures and watch waterfowl play in the pond. Several legends surround this bridge which according to historians are all inaccurate. You can explore the nature trails. That being said you can also see all the cigarette butts left behind from ghosthunters trying to get a response from a ghost with it. You can see candy smushed into the historic floor planks and you can see graffitti carved painted and markered onto its interior historic walls. It is now video monitored as it is out of the way and signs read vandals will be prosecuted. It is a nice site to see i just wish they would clean it more often.

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.

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!

This covered bridge was fun to walk through. It can't be driven, so friends who knew about this drove us to one side.

There are several covered bridges in this area, but the beauty of this one is hard to beat. Easy parking, port-a-potties if needed, and a fun area to explore and walk around! Photographs beautifully & the architecture is fascinating to watch & consider knowing when the bridge was erected.
