Scio

A tour of Scio quickly reveals why this little burg is called the “Covered Bridge Capital of the West.

” Five of the remaining historic, scenic structures (and one new one) span the creeks and rivers surrounding town on these quiet country back roads southeast of Salem. Explore Scio’s railroad history at the Scio Historical Depot Museum, and herd your flock to watch the nation’s oldest sheepdog trials at the annual Lamb & Wool Fair.
