This covered bridge is right off Md 272 North of Cecil Co Community College. One can park near the bridge and walk through. I was there recently after a bad rain and it was very muddy. If you have seen covered bridges in New England...More

A beautiful place to visit any time of the year. Spring storms, summer skies, autumn leaves or winter's blanket make for perfect photo memories. Step out of time and into a moment of surrealism.

The bridge was very pretty and there was a nearby trail which was rather rustic leading back along the water way. It was interesting taking photos inside of the bridge.

This is one of the best things to do when in the area. Not many covered bridges left in Maryland and the family always like going to check it out. Has been restored and has a nice dam below to sit and have lunch.

Well kept by donations and concerned citizens - one of Cecil County's beautiful spots - hoping those that stop and visit appreciate and respect the place - so far they seem to be doing that.

With great historical value, this covered bridge is a must see if in the area. Parking is scarce and it doesn't take more than 10 minutes to view the bridge but it is still a fascinating feature to the area. I wouldn't recommend traveling out...More
