Canyon Creek Ranch covered bridge is a 75 foot modified queenpost covered bridge built in c1932 by Gale S. Hill, spanning the South Santiam River, and located 1 1/2 miles east of Cascadia near the South Santiam Highway.  Probably no other Oregon covered bridge appears to grow, rootlike, out of its site quite so well as this private span. Gale S. Hill, once district attorney, kept a mountain "ranch" for a botanical garden. Hill had the bridge built to serve his ranch. The bridge was destroyed soon after the flood in 1964., Courtesy of State Library of Oregon.
