We were on our way from Quebec City to Moncton and had to stop to see this bridge. It's not too far off the main highway and is a nice little detour. Amazing to see it is still in use and in good shape. We drove through and back and also walked the length of it and back. Stopped at... More

We happened to stumble upon this when were driving back to Ontario through New Brunswick last week. When driving out to New Brunswick we were in Maine and my boyfriend made us drive 1/2 an hour out of our way to go check out one of the oldest covered bridges in North America so to stumble upon this bridge he...

I love the covered bridges and imagine how wonderful they were in days ago when the snow was flying and you had to cross the river. I can picture the buggies stopping for a moment as they cross and a young couple stealing a few kisses in the dark. The freaky part is when you take a look through and... More

We saw a brochure about this in Edmundston, NB as we were planning to cross over to Quebec for some family history searches. We decided this was an excellent diversion. As we drove down the hill and saw the first wood I have to say it took my breath for a moment. We had no idea how long it really... More

My wife and I took a detour from our drive from Frederiction, New Brunswick, back to Houlton and Island Falls, Maine, to visit this landmark. This is a site that is very much worth visiting. We were thrilled to see the impressive length of the bridge, to drive through it in both directions, and to walk across it in both... More

This is a great stop on your travels in New Brunswick. The longest covered bridge in the world is located off the Trans Canada Highway by about 3 km at km marker 172. It is located in the center of Hartland. It has a long history that is told by locals at one of two gift shops located on either... More

Built in 1902, when horses were used for travel. The bridge is one lane and people give turns to ever comes to the entrance first. The bridge was used in courting for young adults; therefore it received the name as the Kissing Bridge. It also has a covered walkway in which you can walk the entire distance of 1,282ft. This...

We were driving up the TransCanada Highway when we happened on the Hartland Bridge. We stopped and both drove through it and walked through it. It is great. It was wonderful to see a large covered wooden bridge still in good shape and still in constant use. We took lots of photos and we were happy to make this short... More

The bridge is very cool to drive through. It is one way with no stop light at either end...seems to work on east coast kindness, a few cars go through one way then a few the other way.

One of the few remaining covered bridges you can still drive on. At 1282 feet, this is the longest covered bridge in the world! And, it is beautiful to boot! For us, it was wonderful to be enclosed in the bridge while driving across feeling as though time might have taken us back to an earlier age...to a time when... More
