A few covered bridges - Oregon
What to do if you have little time : Shevlin
For fans of the movie "The Bridges of Madison County", Oregon is full of covered bridges. For the most they are well maintained. They are of all kinds and colors.
We recommand to stay half an our at each covered bridge. Shevlin covered Bridge is inside a park so you can stay here a little longer (1 hour).
Shevlin Covered Bridge is located inside Shevlin Park. It is a very well maintained wooden bridge spanning the Tumalo Creek. The rest of the park has little interest except its trees, for some gigantic. From the car park, to at least the covered bridge, count about 3 kms roundtrip.
Access : from exit 137 on US 97, turn West on NW Revere avenue for 492 feet. Take the first on your left (NW Wall Street) for 0.6 mile. Turn right on NW Newport Avenue which becomes NW Shevlin Park Road. Go straight forward for 3.9 miles to the park entrance.
