Enjoy a beautiful drive off the beaten path to the North Fork Yachats Covered Bridge. The covered bridge was built in 1938. It was the last covered bridge constructed by veteran bridge builder, Otis Hamer. The Yachats Covered
Bridge is one of the shortest in Oregon, measuring only 42 feet in length. It was rebuilt and rededicated in December of 1989. Though the bridge is open to vehicles, it is closed to large RVs and trucks. The weight limit is 15 tons.
