Walk Over A Gorgeous Bridge On Campbell’s Covered Bridge Loop, An Easy Half-Mile Hike In South Carolina
The only remaining historic covered bridge in South Carolina is worthy of road trip – and a hike. Campbell’s Covered Bridge was constructed in 1909 by a local grist mill owner whose name was (you guessed it… ) Campbell. It remained in private hands until 2005, when it was sold to Greenville County. Now part of a lovely park, this old bridge is a treasure every South Carolinian will feel awash with pride after this glimpse into the past.
