This bridge is lovely. Free of charge and less than a 1/4 mile off the main road. Easily found. It was definitely worth the quick stop for a photo op.

If you're looking for a quick scenic getaway - then head off highway 11 in the Shenandoah Valley to take in an old covered bridge that dates back to 1894! You will enjoy a majestic scene that will take you back in time!
