I discovered the Pisgah covered bridge during my drive home from Asheboro, NC. It wound up being the silver lining of an accidental decision to take country roads home instead of the highway. The whole drive was actually pretty scenic, but the covered bridge was definitely the highlight.
Pisgah covered bridge was built in 1911 to allow horses and carriages to cross the Little River. Eventually surpassed by more modern roadways, the bridge was designated a historical landmark. It later became the focus of a major preservation project in 2008 when a flood washed the bridge away. Fortunately, it was reconstructed, partially with original wood rescued from the river.
Today the bridge is still accessible from the road and visitor friendly. There are picnic tables, and a short trail that loops from one side of the bridge to the other.
