Office Covered Bridge

The Office Covered Bridge is unique. Not only is it the longest covered bridge in Oregon, but it is the only one with a pedestrian lane. Built for logging trucks to come and go to the long-defunct mill, and for workers to go from the mill to the mill office (now Westfir Lodge B&B) for their paychecks, the Office Covered Bridge is beautiful year-round, pretty accessible (the wooden surface may be a bit hard but not impossible for those in wheelchairs), and located at the beginning of the West Cascades Scenic Byway. Osprey, eagles, cranes, trout, fox, bear, elk, deer and loads of other flora and fauna abound.

Sit and have a picnic beside the bridge in summer and you’ll bathe in the beauty of the area. Visit Santa, hear carolers, drink hot cocoa, and enjoy the splendor of the festively lit bridge the first Saturday night in December. Enjoy blackberry picking in August, falls colors in late October, the sound of the train going by, and the enormity of the beams used to build this scenic treasure.
