The Pisgah Covered Bridge is one of the last two remaining covered spans in all of North Carolina. It is located in the city of Asheboro in the county of Randolph, across the west fork of the Little River.

The Pisgah Covered Bridge was built by JJ Welch in 1911 with only $40. It is actually a 54 feet long, one lane bridge. It was originally used by locals, but when traffic increased, it proved insufficient for the task at hand and became obsolete. It was bypassed in the 1950s by a nearby two-lane concrete bridge.

The Pisgah Covered Bridge is maintained by the joint efforts of the North Carolina Zoo Society, NC Department of Transportation, Landtrust for Center North Carolina, and the Piedmont Land Conservancy. It was declared a National Register Historic Site and a federal historic landmark.
