  • In the middle of nowhere at the end of a dust track emerge the red figure of a bridge. You're expect that appear the famous couple Clint & Meryl... With the success of the film, it became a tourist attraction of course! Actually two bridges have been mixed into the film and there's 6 which are still standing. They worth the detour

  • Beautiful bridge and cute gift shop. Worth the view and tasting wine and samples in the gift shop. Adorable dog outside that loves people and is so quiet and nice 
  • Was in Des Moines, IA on business and made a special road trip to Winterset to see the Bridges and the filming locations for the movie The Bridges of Madison County. Totally worth it! This bridge was my favorite of the 2 used in the movie and actually felt like I was apart of the movie while visiting. I could stay there all day and enjoy the view of just being there and the beautiful countryside with the rolling hills. Gorgeous! Definitely a step back into time :)
  • Awesome to see these covered bridges of Madison County. Dirt roads to access most of them, so, be prepared for driving on dirt and rocks.
  • Very cool place to visit but get ready to clean the Iowa gravel road dust off your car but well worth it
  • This bridge is probably the best known of the six remaining covered bridges in Madison county because of the movie. If you are here to see it in person, definitely check out the others since they are all quite charming and relatively close.
  • I wish it was better kept, but still very nice to visit
