Valley Pike Covered Bridge

Valley Pike Covered Bridge

The Valley Pike Covered Bridge is located over Lee Creek along Valley Pike Road near Fernleaf, Kentucky.


The Valley Pike Covered Bridge, a covered Kingpost truss, was constructed in 1864. 1 3 It was rebuilt by Stock Bower in 1972.

The privately-owned bridge, used for farm access, was considered Kentucky’s shortest covered bridge. 2 After flooding in July 2017 caused severe damage to the crossing, the Valley Pike Covered Bridge was demolished and replaced with a conventional bridge in April 2018.
