BMW of Eugene Covered Bridges Tour
April 22 @ 9:45 am - 2:30 pm| Free
Oregon has over 50 covered bridges. Last year we saw six in Linn County and it was a huge success. So this year, to continue the tradition, we are going to see some of the covered bridges of Lane County. The good people of BMW of Eugene will kick things off with coffee and edibles. They have the new 5 series and a new X5 xDrive40e, both new for 2017. We will have a quick rundown of the driving rules and head out. Southeast of Eugene has an amazing combination of scenic roads and covered bridges that are still in use. Once we leave Eugene, country roads and state roads will take us to Westfir. Lookout Point Lake and the Middle Fork of the Willamette will be our guide. After a short break at the bridge in the beautiful town of Westfir, we will make our way back to Lowell to continue our country road driving. Along the way we will see 5 covered bridges before Lunch. Lunch will be in Springfield at Hole-in-the-Wall BBQ. This is a nice sit-down place nothing like the name implies. If you still haven’t had enough scenic driving, after lunch we will see three more covered bridges on curvier roads heading North. Stay with us the whole way or join us for part of it. Either way I hope to see you and especially everyone in the central valley, and Southern Oregon, at this years Covered Bridges Tour.
