There are numerous covered bridges to be found in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Many of these covered bridges are still in use, yet others have decayed into an unusable state of disrepair. A few of these covered bridges have been restored for historical preservation and are adjoined with sprawling parks and nature trails.
