This bridge, located on McKenzie River Drive and King Road in Rainbow, was about a two block walk from our campsite.
The original Belknap Bridge was constructed in 1890 by Mr. T. Thomson. This bridge was replaced in 1911 by Lane County with another covered structure. The third covered bridge was erected by Lane County in 1939. That bridge was destroyed by the Christmas flood of 1964. The present structure was opened for traffic on October 31, 1966. It was restored in 1992.
And one of the best parts? You can take the bus from Eugene (or even from the coast if you plan things out right) via the Lane Transit District. Some people take their bikes on the bus and are set for a fun time.
I hope that you enjoyed these pretty pictures. If you would like to see photos of the Unity Covered Bridge in Fall Creek, Oregon, just "Click Here".
