County chip-sealing Larwood and Fish Hatchery Drive

Visitors to Larwood Covered Bridge Wayside Park and Roaring River County Park should be aware that the Linn County Road Department will be chip-sealing Larwood Drive and Fish Hatchery Drive Aug. 1 – 2.

Both parks will remain open but access could be delayed. The Larwood Covered Bridge parking area will be closed, however visitors can access Roaring River by walking across the covered bridge.

Roaring River and Larwood Covered Bridge are at 42000 Fish Hatchery Drive, Scio. Both are open year-round.

Roaring River is a 28-acre park for fishermen and picnic-goers. The park has three large, reservable picnic shelters, hiking trails and a fishing pond.

Larwood Covered Bridge Wayside offers picnicking, restrooms, swimming and fishing. The covered bridge is on the National Register of Historic places and was built in 1939. It was named after William Larwood, who settled the area in 1888.
