The Clarkson-Legg Covered Bridge is a historic covered span in Cullman County, Alabama, inside the Clarkson Covered Bridge Park. It was built in 1904, measuring 270 feet in the Town Lattice truss construction of over four spans.

Noted for being the second longest existing covered bridge in the state of Alabama, the Clarkson-Legg Covered Bridge is actually the main feature in the Clarkson Covered Bridge Park, alongside with other historic structures such as the gristmill and log cabin. It has always been located in the current site, built by James W. Legg over Crooked Creek when he still owned the area. It has been destroyed once in 1921, but it was restored by the Cullman County, so it was able to accommodate motor traffic until 1962. Today, it only allows pedestrian traffic.
