There’s A Beautiful Covered Bridge Trail In Ohio And You’ll Want To Take It
Because Ohio is undeniably gorgeous in the fall, it’s the perfect season to take leisurely road trips across the state. Fortunately, Ohio is home to several scenic byways that will allow you to do just that.
The Covered Bridges Byway in Ashtabula County, (also known as the Ashtabula County Covered Bridge Tour), is an especially beautiful way to take in some of Ohio’s back road fall foliage and discover some charming covered bridges along the way. Drive through America’s shortest and longest covered bridge along this scenic route, which features a total of 18 covered bridges in Ashtabula County, with 16 of them drivable. Begin your drive at the Windsor Mills Covered Bridge near Orwell and end your journey at Creek Road Covered Bridge near Kingsville.
