Covered Bridges

 

Self-Guided Tours

 

Lane County is home to 20 covered bridges dating back as early as 1920; many are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Fourteen are still open to traffic.

The towns of Cottage Grove ("Covered Bridge Capital of the West") and Lowell are natural starting places to begin a covered bridge tour.

Whether you decide to drive through, picnic beside, or sit on the riverbank and dangle your toes in the refreshing waters beneath, exploring the region's nostalgic and romantic covered bridges is the perfect excuse to take a break from the fast lane.

With more remaining covered bridges than any other place on the West Coast, Oregon's landmark bridges offer history buffs, photographers and sightseers a look at a well-preserved past in the beautiful setting of the Pacific Northwest.
