  • The long winding gravel road that takes you to and from this covered bridge is packed with wildlife. Another feature for photographers to add to this historic covered bridge. Here, there is also an impromptu gift shop.
  • Old Beautiful and solid see it at least once nostalgic, cute gift shop! Locally made wines, honey, and Bridges of Madison County trinkets. See Beverly your gift shop hostess she has a wealth of information
  • Beautiful covered bridge off the beaten path. You can no longer drive across this bridge, but the quiet beautiful view with only the sound of the stream and the birds chirping it's so worth the visit if you are anywhere nearby.
  • 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 :)
  • Pretty far from highway. There is gift shop.
