The Stayton-Jordan Covered Bridge
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

Prior to 1986, the Jordan Bridge spanned Thomas Creek in neighboring Linn County several miles east of Scio. The original bridge location had once been the site for a dam, a cheese factory, two mills and a general store.
Patterned after the Jordan Bridge, which spanned Thomas Creek, east of Scio it was moved to Pioneer Park in 1988, but burned in 1994. The current Stayton-Jordan Bridge is newly rebuilt.
