  • Great covered bridge to see with a wonderful damn/waterfall by it. Great views and easy to find. Park along the gravel road or areas provided. There’s an area you can walk down by the creek. Very...

  • Taftsville Covered Bridge is certainly worth a visit. It offers a great photo opportunity! I found the workmanship viewable from the inside very interesting, also.

  • Beautiful bridge in Woodstock with a wonderful waterfall by it. You can go down and take a small walk along side the river to get the best view into the bridge. Drive through the bridge and see the stunning foliage outside is a very nice experience
  • Beautiful bridge from all angles. Inside, outside, sideview, underside. If you look close you can see where people who drive RVs have rammed their AC into the bridge and the boards have been replaced! (Happens seemingly once a year.) Included a photo regarding the history of the Taftsville Covered Bridge. There's a generator building (inaccessible to the public) connected to the waterfall, which it fun to look in the windows. There's stairs leading down on the opposite side of Route 4, and while the steps probably been some TLC, it's still pretty accessible in order to reach the bottom. A nice breeze hits you at the bottom, along with the powerful sound of the falls and running water. If you move further away from the falls, it's a nice place to just walk around in the water, about knee height and deeper. Closer to the falls, there's a much deeper part, but I rarely see folk swimming.
  • Beautiful views. Semi busy covered bridge. There isn't really a decent place to pull off and park but we were able to do so without disrupting the traffic and it was worth the stop.
  • Loved the bridge and dam water fall! Came here through Old River Rd from Woodstock on Saturday, October 15. The drive on Old River Rd was scary. It was really narrow and the side of the road we were had the ledge into the river. At points that oncoming traffic came, we were very close to the ledge. My wife was terrified! We got to the bridge safely and took some pics. The bridge is a beautiful red color and nice length. I recommend taking Rt 4 to get to the bridge and cross to Old River Rd. Highly recommend this stop if you're near!
  • Iconic bridge, must visit! This place is close to Woodstock downtown. Most of the folks click picture while on the way, you can also drive on the bridge. There is a parking right before the bridge for 4-5 cars! We have parked the car, and walked on the bridge, on the other side of the bridge there is a walk way down where you can find great views of the bridge and the river.
