A lovely spot next to the old mill in Bridgeton with water cascading down beside it. I was a little disappointed to discover that it was built in 2006 and never actually used unlike many of the other old covered bridges in the area.

Stopped here on a motorcycle ride. Truly a beautiful site to see. Great place with excellent photo opportunities. Every shot looks like a post card. There is also a place to stop and have ice cream. Very friendly people.

There are over 40 covered bridges in the state. This is a big one but is lost in the city clutter. Go out in the country and see one of the more pristine ones.

Just beware you may not have cell phone service out there if you are one that rely on MAPS app. I suggest taking a printed map with you if you don't know your way.
