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.

The loop trail at Campbell’s Covered Bridge should take about 15 minutes if you take your time to really enjoy the peaceful surroundings. But the park itself is easily a place you could spend two or three hours enjoying. It’s open from dawn to dusk 365 days a year. Admission is free. Learn more about Campbell’s Covered Bridge  from the official site for Greenville County Rec.
