I got a picture right before I went through it and then parked briefly on the other side to get a few more pictures. The adjoining park was sadly closed so there is limited parking. Also the address for the bridge is... More

I took a group of girl scouts here for a ceremony and I'm so glad I did! What a beautiful bridge, what a beautiful location! A small park is being created around the bridge. This really is a beautiful location - I'm going to bring my daughters back for some formal portraits to be taken near the bridge. High recommend!

Loys Station is a great place for family. Scenery of bridge, and creek very picturesque. Great play area for children and wonderful place to picnic. When our children were small we went there all the time and now they are grown they still visit there when they are in town. Wonderful picture taking atmosphere.

Another is less than a mile from the Shamrock Restaurant on Rt. 15.This one at Loy's Station has a beautiful picnic ground, outside rest room facilities, and is a favorite of photographers and artists because it is in the open and accessible...

Loy's Station Covered bridge is located beside a pristine park and is very relaxing. A few more miles and you will find the Roddy Road Covered Bridge too! Great route for cars & bicycles.

We had a great afternoon. The kids splashed and played in the waters of the creek, and the breeze was pleasant. It was very pastoral. Such a great place to take photo's too. We stayed for a couple of hours. You should pack a picnic and bring the camera.

By far this is one of the nicest as it has a little park surrounding it. Bring some charcoal and hamburgers and hotdogs and have a nice cookout. Bring your kids, their bathing suits, a bucket and some nets and you can catch crayfish all day long as you wade and play in the creek.

As someone else pointed out to me, there are three covered bridges in the Thurmont, Rocky Ridge area that are just off Highway 15, and within about 11 miles of each other. There is a nice link, with addresses for Utica Mills Bridge on Utica Road, Loy's Station Briidge on Old Federick Road and Roddy Road Bridge on Roddy Road.... More

Driving the Frederick County's Covered Bridge Tour creates opportunities to see small towns, beautiful scenery and of course, the 3 covered bridges. Roddy Road Bridge, Loy's Station Bridge and Utica Mills Bridge (currently undergoing repairs). You can get some really great pictures of these bridges or just stop in and place yourself in the time period of the mid to... More
