North Fork of the Yachats Bridge

World Guide Number: 37-21-08

This 42 ft. bridge with its Queenpost truss is located near the Cape Perpetua area, and is one of Oregon's most picturesque. It is nestled in a valley just a few miles from the scenic coastal town of Yachats (pronounced Yah-hots, a coastal Indian word meaning "at the foot of the mountian"). In 1938 master bridge builder, Otis Hamar, built this span for a total cost of $1,500.

To access this bridge, take the Yachats River Road inland until you come to the concrete bridge, turn left and proceed about 2 miles. This is a must see!
