Seven Bridges is a short area of Route 12 between Watertown and Clayton, situated in a valley and crossing over Perch River flats and the swampy Perch River Dam area. It is a popular place for fishing, and has a parking area.

'Seven Bridges' never actually had seven bridges but originally had eight bridges, which basically were only a few feet above the level of the Perch River flats and allowed as much water to pass through the area as possible. With one bridge it was quickly inundated with water during high water seasons. These were and , but after various construction projects it is presently a total of three bridges.
