Mud River Covered Bridge is a historic covered bridge that formerly spanned the Mud River at Milton, Cabell County, West Virginia. It was built about 1875, and is a single-span, modified Howe truss structure. It measures approximately 112 feet (34 m) in length and 14 feet (4.3 m) in width.

The bridge was restored in 1971[2] and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1] It was relocated twice, first in 1997 to a temporary site near its original location, and then again in 2001 to a new location crossing a pond at the Cabell County Fairgrounds.[3]
