I belong to Bridge City Corvette Club out of Portland, Oregon, and have arranged covered bridge tours several times, What's not to say about driving through these wonderful bridges, Oregon has the most covered bridges west of the Mississippi!

Great family trip, wonderful bike ride, too. Traveling East just past the bridge, look for the buffalo farm in the pastures near it! Lovely drive connecting you from Scio to Stayton, Lyons, Mehema, the little towns with fun surprises and great resturants.

Nothing special if you've seen covered bridges before. This bridge is part of a group of several in the vicinity.

Just one of the beautiful covered bridges on the self-guided tour near Scio. Gorgeous countryside and each bridge has a unique character all its own.

This is only 1 of 5 covered bridges in the Scio zip code. Its been in a few movies over the years. It is kind of unique as its a red bridge all others that i have seen anywhere are white.
