Knox Covered Bridge

Located in Valley Forge National Historic Park, the Knox Covered Bridge was built in 1865, and uses the Burr arch design. The bridge features white, horizontal siding, instead of the more common horizontal siding and red paint scheme seen on most covered bridges.

The Knox Covered Bridge is unique in that it is painted white, has partially open sides, and uses horizontal siding boards. The span is a bit hard to appreciate from outside of your car though, and is located on an almost blind curve, so use caution when approaching and crossing it.

To view it from outside your car, we recommend driving a few hundred feet up Yellow Springs Road to a small pull-off/picnic area, and walking back down to the bridge. There are no sidewalks, and there isn't much of a shoulder to walk on, so be extra careful of passing cars.
