$4.128 million will fix this beauty!! World's longest single span wood covered bridge!!
Beautiful bridge closed for maintenance. Hope they retain the original and rustic look of the bridge.
Everyone told us to visit this crossing of the South Yuba River. True that parking is aplenty, it's shallow, and lots of easy access points for families. However it was nowhere as spectacular as the other crossings. Maybe that's an Aug thing, I don't know. Did hear that Buttermilk Trail which starts here is a great spring wildflower hike. We like that the South Yuba River Conservancy League was here for outreach about taking out your own trash. They were even collecting a little at the closest access points to the parking lot. Also note that parking is $5 even by the road. The self registration station was out of envelopes and we had to drive/walk to the next parking lot where the Ranger kiosk is, to pay.
Looks fairly nice with good swimming! However, if coming on the weekend or a holiday, plan to come earlier as parking is a mess here!
Beautiful bridge, lots of history and a great spot to swim in the summer.
