ROADTRIP MICHIGAN: A Route That Takes You to Every Covered Bridge in Michigan
Before the trees are completely bare, you should take this roadtrip while there is still some color left:
A Michigan roadtrip that takes you to every covered bridge in our state.
Michigan has a nice handful of covered bridges, of which three are still open to vehicle traffic, while the others are for foot traffic.
Onlyinyourstate.com suggests you start your roadtrip at the Fallasburg bridge in Lowell, built in 1871 and open to vehicles.
The covered bridge in Ada, built in 1867, is a foot bridge that crosses the Thornapple River.
The Langley covered foot bridge in Centreville crosses the St. Joseph River and is the longest one in Michigan.
Next stop is the Holz-Brucke covered bridge in Frankenmuth. It was built for traffic in 1980.
The last covered bridge for vehicles is the Pierce Stocking covered bridge on the same-named Scenic Drive at Sleeping Bear Dunes. This one is especially photo-friendly in the fall. WOW...the whole scenic route is extraordinary!
The Loon Song covered bridge at Joshua’s Crossing in Benzie County is 90-feet long and crosses a 20-foot-deep ravine. A perfect foot bridge for photo ops.
