The Devil's Den, McClurg Covered Bridge is a historic King post truss covered bridge in Paris, Pennsylvania.[2] Built in 1880,[3] the bridge originally was part of Devil's Den Road and crossed Kings Creek in Paris, PA. The bridge was relocated to its present location in 1987.[3] It crosses a small ravine in Hanover Township Park along Old Steubenville Pike. It is only open to foot traffic.[2] It is 12'3" wide and 24' long, with red vertical plank siding, three rectangular windows on each side, and a cedar shakes roof.[2] The bridge is part of an annual Covered Bridge Festival.[2]

It is designated as a historic bridge by the Washington County History & Landmarks Foundation.[4]
