The bridge and surrounding area are very well maintained and beautiful. There's a gently moving creek that flows under the bridge and when we were there flowers were blooming. There is someones private property right next door so we didn't wander to far but it was a nice place to get out and stretch and take some pretty photos.

I only just spotted this historic covered bridge out of the corner of my eye while driving between Florence, OR on the coast and Eugene, OR inland. It took me a few miles to find a place to turn around, but it was worth the effort. I am surprised that this bridge does not have a place of it's own... More

After hiking to Drift Creek Falls, it's a great side trip to view the bridge. It's an easy and short trip as you head back to town.

This is a very nice drive in for the hardy. It is a Forest Road, dark and forbidding for some, exciting and titilating for others. You may run into and over branches, debris, etc. Look down the sides at steep sloped on the way. Great cut through from 18 to 101 going south or from 101 to 18 going back... More

If you enjoy observing architecture and construction, even though this is primarily about the covered bridge, there is plenty to see. Several placards tell the interesting story of the bridge and the family who put it over this creek. Well worth the short side trip from the main highway.

Condemned, saved, moved. The backstory is readily available online & adds to its charms. It's in a lovely, wooded setting 1 mile south of Highway 18 & only a few miles east of Lincoln City. Definitely well worth a very short side trip to view a piece of local history.

Totally beautiful wooden bridge. With the falling leaves I could have been back in Maine. The creek running under the bridge was tinkly and beautiful sounding. Thank goodness this bridge was saved by a great couple. Worth the visit.
