Packsaddle Covered Bridge (Doc Miller Covered Bridge) is located in Southern Somerset County and is one of 10 remaining in the County. The bridge was built in 1877 by and unknown builder, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Rehabilitated in 1950 and in 1996 after a flood damaged the bridge. It is of King Post Style and crosses Brush Creek. It’s the one of the most scenic, idyllic covered bridge in Somerset County and the only covered bridge in Pennsylvania with a waterfall underneath. The 10-15 ft falls flows over a series of drops. There is a small foot path leading to falls. Though be careful of the slippery rocks. Following the footpath downstream you’ll find a few areas to climb down alongside the creek for a better view. Also be careful when doing this because of the private property on the other side.
