I recently took my parents adventuring for a day. We found two covered bridges that I’ve been wanting to see but didn’t really want to visit on my own simply because they are a little isolated.
Turns out that taking my parents on the gravel, somewhat narrow backroads of Morgan County, Ohio may not have been the best choice.
Let’s just say they prefer the paved roads but they tried to be good sports about the ordeal. As for myself, I thought it was great fun! Pictured above is the first of the bridges – the Adams or San Toy bridge.
It spans San Toy Creek near Malta and was built in 1875. While it was closed for many years, a restoration project about seven years ago allowed the bridge to be reopened to vehicle traffic.
Here’s the view down the road from inside the bridge.
Isn’t it lovely?
I will admit that we didn’t take the best route to get there so if you go, be sure to enter from the State Route 555 side. After you’ve enjoyed the bridge, it’s probably best if you just turn around a leave the way you came.
I will leave it at that.
If you want to visit, the GPS coordinates are 39°37’29” N, 82°01’56” W.
Go and enjoy!!
