The Sachs Covered Bridge was a great site. The truss design was very unique. The restoration and preservation of the bridge is a true testament of the local people and groups to keep history alive

You can't visit Gettysburg without stopping at Sach's Bridge! Research the history of it before you visit, and plan to see it before dark!

Scary at night but don't let that deter you . There is a sign that states under surveillance camera .A monument to another time. Beautiful river beneath. Especially lovely on fall

A very popular bridge to visit. There were two groups taking their Christmas card photos and then lots of people enjoying a mild November afternoon.

This place has easy access and is easy to find. Great photo ops! You can find it very easy in Google Maps on Waterworks Road which is about 10 minutes outside the main street in Gettysburg.

My family and I like to go to this bridge because it is so beautiful. The water is so peaceful to listen to. Great place to get nature photos.

Pretty view. But, boring. Nice place to take pictures. Someone said that it was haunted. I saw no evidence of that.

Difficulty finding at first. The memorial plaque is across the road and we assumed it was down the other direction. We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the bridge and its surroundings. Very picturesque.
