Sweet, love covered bridges and bridges in general. I only know of 2 near me. One at McConnell's Mills which is an old historic mill along the Slippery Rock Creek here in western PA. I just found another on my way to the Sandy Creek trail I rode a few weeks ago.

Not covered but down the road from me in Foxburg, PA (home of the oldest runnin golf course in the US) there use to be a really cool single lane 2 tier metal grate bridge going across the river. The top deck use to be railway way back in the day. A few years ago they blew the dang thin up to put an ugly run-of-the-mill concrete 2 lane bridge because some rich doctor pretty much bought the whole town to build a big fancy restaraunt and bunch of snob shops. Now the cute little rural town that use to have one of the most unique bridges is overrun with rich city snobs.

Graham road one for pedestrians? Tell me you can ride down those stairs on a bike like that. (I haven't tried or had the occasion to since I was 12)

I used to hike McConnell's Mill regularly when I lived closer to PA. Gorgeous spot.

I'm familiar some of those bridges in Ashtabula Co. as well. I used to routinely ride in rural Geauga County when I worked out that way. Southington, Orwell, Farmington... etc. Some of my rides would take me to southern Ashtabula. I'd see more Amish buggies than I would cars.... I miss those days....

It was moved off the road and a new bridge replaced it, but they kept it as a tourist thing. I did not ride down the steps because they were donated by a church and do not want to destroy property on my bike.

Respeck! Those are awesome bridges, I'm jealous I've never seen anything like that outside of watching beetlejuice.

There is only one covered bridge in all of Ontario. It is located in West Montrose, very near where I grew up.
