Auchumpkee Creek Covered Bridge reviews
Beautiful, well maintained, peaceful covered bridge. Lots of history. Very accessible should you not be too ambulatory. The babbling creek going under the bridge is worth taking a picnic and enjoy.... more »
This is a very unique place to visit. Lots of history here. Just to see how it was built and imagine the hours and labor that went into it. more »
Nice hidden treasure in the middle of nowhere. Super nice area and very quiet. Perfect for a creekside picnic. Bridge is nice to walk through.
It just very nice Covered Bridge it's old and well-maintained you can walk across it but you cannot drive it although there are no trash cans or picnic tables there I believe that it would be a good place to have a picnic and to bring the kids there is a little creek running underneath it but please whatever you pack in please pack it out leave no trash or no sign that you were there but it's a great place it's nice and quiet!
