Take Hwy. 20 west from Grass Valley towards
Turn Right on Pleasant Valley Road and
go about 8 miles until you reach the covered bridge.
Several parking lots are
located where Pleasant Valley Road crosses the Yuba River.
Roadside parking is also available.
You can hike approximately 1.5 miles downstream
(west) or upstream (east).
Downstream meanders along the Yuba River
as it flows into the Englebright Reservoir.
Upstream goes along the river, and has
some great swimming holes.
Bridgeport is located on the far west
side of Nevada County.
The beautiful Yuba River is perfect for
and in the summer there are several great
places to swim.
Hiking is great all year long.
The historic covered bridge has been around
and the old toll station road can still
be seen today.
A lot of items have been preserved, and
the entire place is rich with history.
