Plenty of parking in a beautiful setting . Even just the drive around the bridge and park are beautiful . No fee and a good time ? no brainer . Go ready for a good time , pack a lunch and a cooler .

While driving along Route 7, you must check out this covered one lane covered bridge! I'm fascinated by relics like this that are still in use today. You certainly can drive through it, or park the car in the nearby lot and jump out to walk across. The cut-out windows provide a view of the rushing water below and there... More

Been here numerous times and it never gets old. The nearby hiking trail that walks along the Housatonic River is just as nice.

The raw force of nature, contained for us to see, is impressive in the spring when the river is high. at other times, it's fun to climb on the rocks.

How excited were we to come across a proper american covered bridge as we arrived at our first destination on our trip to new england. By sheer luck our sat nav took us on the route get we had to drive through it to Kent. seek this little bridge out if you are in the area, it is quintessential america.

I found this during a section hike of the Appalachian Trail which runs right near Bull's Bridge. I returned here with my wife and son after they picked me up. The covered bridge is a nice diversion and reminder of times past and it is very close to the AT. From the bridge you can pick up the AT and... More

Between Bull's Bridge and Cornwall Bridge I preferred this one. You could drive trough it to the other side and then turn around and come back. They had a parking lot that was right next to the bridge so you didn't have to walk a long ways. We were able to walk onto the bridge and get some great pictures... More

this is a must see for kids and for adults who have never seen a covered bridge in real life. We have wonderful memories -- it may have changed with age and number of tourists. It was rural and quiet and charming when we went there. The charming town of Kent is up the road. Well worth the trip for... More

We've come a few times with our kids. The bridge is cool but its small and you've done with it pretty quickly. There are fun places to hike though around the gorge. You can climb out on the rocks into the middle of some pretty good rapids. I've been there on a rafting trip years ago during one of the... More

Great little covered bridge. Beautiful rock formations in the falls. Check out this area on a nice day.
