We stopped by the covered bridge while doing a self guided driving tour. No one there but us and the ducks, who didn't seem to mind sharing the lovely spot with us. We weren't there to ghost hunt - though many have said the bridge is haunted. It was a pleasant spot for a brief visit and some photos.

So the bridge is really pretty, and reflects nicely on the water, but I went during early on a weekday, and it had a desolate feel. It's at the end of a road, and there isn't anything else out there. Someone was target shooting nearby, and I didn't feel entirely comfortable out there by myself. I am sure it was... More

Well worth a quick side trip. The bridge is beautiful with the exception of the graffiti and cigarette butts (what is wrong with people?)

One of the most beautiful covered bridges I have seen. Built prior to the Civil War and used by both Armies. Also has a small flock of hungry ducks

Beautiful. This is a little off the beaten track, but it is so worth it when you step onto the bridge and you get a feeling of peace. So beautiful and so worth the trip to find the bridge.

We came on a hot afternoon. Walking onto the bridge gave an eerie feeling, but an exciting one. Some ghost hunting groups in Gettysburg allow visitors to go here to ghost hunt with their equipment. The history of the bridge is interesting as well.

Sach's Covered Bridge is nice to visit and the scenery around it is gorgeous. Sadly, the inside of the bridge is covered in graffiti and there are hundreds of cigarette butts around the railing from ghost tours trying to get the alleged ghost Tennessee to smoke or move a cigarette to prove he is there. As for ghosts, there aren't... More
