This is one of my favorite driving tours. Get the Bedford County Information booklet. The directions are perfect. Never got lost & found another of my favorite spots in Bedford on my first tour.

The Bedford County website has information. You can also get a printed brochure at the Visitor's Center in Bedford. The Visitor's Center also has a book with information on covered bridges throughout Pennsylvania.
