The construction is amazing. Check out the thick wide floor timbers. Covered bridge are always a treat to see.

Ride your bike over from downtown Oxford, or enjoy a good hike to visit this site. Several entries into Oxford were once graced by covered bridges like this last one, which remains on its original site (the road has been moved!)

Clearly a historic covered bridge, but not very exciting. Much of it has been replaced, so the feeling one gets is not one seeped in history. It almost has a modern feeling. Nonetheless, it is worth seeing and only takes a few minutes to do so.

We made a visit to check out this historic bridge as there aren't many remaining. It was dusk so as you walk down the bridge, the light sensors kick in and light up the bridge making a cool effect. They also have a sign in front of the bridge so you can read more about it. There's also parking nearby... More

Historic marker gives history of bridge. The back of bridge is enclosed with chain link fencing so can't walk through the bridge. Personally I found this to take away from the atmosphere of bridge. As other reviewer so eloquently put it you like covered bridges, it is one.

If you like covered bridges, this is one. It's a little hard-to-find, look for the stadium at Miami University and it's across the street.

The bridge has some interesting history if you want to read the markers. It has quite a bit of vandalism in the way of names and other graffiti drawn or carved into it. it is also fenced in so you can enter and walk to the end but the padlocked gate at the other end will prevent most from going...
