This bridge is longer than many covered bridges I have seen. This makes it unique in that regard. I think it's the 2nd longest in AL. There is a creek below that you can explore. It's free and you can walk through the bridge.

I went here thinking there might be something special about the place, but aside from hiking trails, there was just a covered bridge.

I love covered bridges and this was fantastic. In a beautiful setting. Sun was shining so was really good visit. Only thing missing was Clint Eastwood! ( for those of you old enough to remember the film Covered Bridges of Maddison County)

Donation based , took my daughters who love to draw there is unlimited scenery and photo opportunities. This place is absolutely beautiful from babbling brook to covered bridge. Take a picnic or sack lunch or hotdogs and utilize the on-site grills.

You will love visiting Clarkson Bridge. It is sitting over a lovely creek. There is a nice park with picnic tables. The children will enjoy wading along the creek edge. There is a primitive building on site that you can enjoy. Just this past weekend,...More

It seems there were some signs after you get off I-65 at Exit 308, but I don't recall seeing any signs from I-65. A travel website provided the following directions: From Cullman, take I-65 exit 308. Drive west on US Hwy 278... More
