  • My wife and i love seeing the old covered bridges of America when we visit from England. To see the Bridges of Madison County was a long held ambition which we now have completed. We loved it.

  • 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
