Loy's Station Covered Bridge reviews
Was first built around 1880, but was rebuilt in 1991, using remaining timbers, after an arsonist burned it. It is one of three covered bridges in the Thurmont area. The Union Army crossed the stream..... more »
Not only is the bridge very picturesque but there is also a nice park nearby with ample parking, bathrooms, and a fun playground. Those things combined made it a fun stop for our entire family! more »
Beautiful covered bridge for cars n bikes. Nice park with pavilions a stream etc.
This area has several covered bridges and a driving tour can be done in a few hours. There is a picnic table next to the water at this bridge. It is under shade and makes for the perfect picnic area to stop during the covered bridge tour. (Self tour).
