This covered bridge is beautiful. you can walk over it. It is very pretty to photograph at sunset. There were even ducks swimming under the bridge and a blue heron there to greet us. The ducks were friendly yet wild but walked right up to me. They were obviously fed by some folks. Nice quiet peaceful place with a beautiful... More

My wife and I were part of a Mustang Cruise to Gettysburg and one of the early stops was at the Sachs Covered Bridge. Although we had been to Gettysburg numerous times in the past, we did not know about the bridge. It is about a 1/4 mile off the main paved road and cannot be seen from the main... More

I recommend this place with a paranormal investigator so you can really experience the haunting here. The bridge is very spooky and the history is very heavy. I did not see it in the day but would recommend seeing it.

My family lived near this bridge for many, many years. We've enjoyed its beauty in every season and every time of day. It's always been a favorite place to walk, fish, and skip stones in the creek. I don't believe in ghosts and in over 20 years of my own residency in the area never saw anything remotely ghostly. Actually... More

We stopped here because it was a "must see" but in all reality it's just a bridge. I didn't have high expectations, but it's honestly just a bridge. It photographs well. While we were there some people were fishing and walking about.

It is a good stop to view this historical place and take a few pictures. I recommend a short visit. Is it haunted? some people believe it is.

My husband and I decided to go to the bridge around midnight alone. Ran into a pleasant local couple who was giving us some pointers on some ghosts to not be afraid of and ghosts to run from. First of all it is beautiful there at night. The stars were out by the thousands and it was super quiet which... More

We stopped her one recent Saturday to check out the Sachs covered bridge. It is not open to traffic. There is ample parking before you get to the bridge. Beautiful creek goes under bridge. Walkways on both sides of the bridge. Beautiful reflections in the water. Very peaceful and quiet.
