“Shortest covered Bridge in Oregon”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

We followed the winding Yachats River for abour 8-9 miles east , after a nice lunch at the Adobe Restaurant, until it became a dirt road and after a mile or so there was the bridge and a small pullout. It reminded us of the covered bridges we have seen in New England except that they are much longer and larger. However, this is a neat variation from the main point of our visit to Oregon...the coast. Don't miss gem, but don't make it your only reason to visit Yachats.

“Lovely bridge”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Beautiful old bridge well maintained. On your return trip take the uphill road for a very scenic drive. Don't take the road if narrow steep roads make you nervous.

“The bridge to somewhere special”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I had read about this 1938 rustic bridge online. We were even more determined to visit the site when some patrons at a Yachats restaurant told us about it. It's a nice winding drive to get there but the last leg is unpaved. There is a pull-out next to the bridge (by a very large old tree). It is due for a $1 million renovation next year funded by the federal government. There are 'no hunting' signs all over the place probably because there is a protected Elk foraging site nearby. Be sure to look out for the 'OREO' cow farm as you drive back to Yachats. I referred to them as 'Panda' cows only to find out later that they are actually Belted Galloways.

“Lovely drive!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Loved the drive through the pastures and meadows of the valley. My husband sure wish he had his fishing pole. A great destination drive that allowed us to enjoy the countryside.

“Bovines and bridges”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

About 7-9 miles east of Yachats sits the North Fork Yachats covered bridge. There are only a hand ful of these covered bridges left from a bygone era. If you are into the history of these bridges you will like this. Even if your not, the drive to it is gorgeous. You will drive along the river and through farm pastures along the way. Another interesting thing to look at on your way are the Belted Galloway Bovines, better known as '' The Oreo Cows" because of their markings. My wife and I stopped to see them and as we walked back and forth along the road they would follow us back and forth and watch us. Very curious cows!
