Touring the Five Covered Bridges Around Scio

Gilkey CB sm

Scio and the area around were once served by at least nine covered bridges; five covered bridges remain in daily service now; two were demolished and two have been moved to neighboring communities as park features. All five current bridges are easily accessible and we invite you to tour our five authentic covered bridges. To read about and see our covered bridges click on the links below. The locator map can be printed and features a fun and scenic tour of the bridges that you can do via bicycle or auto. Enjoy.
