a great place to take pictures and wade in the water. Absolutely beautiful. Loved it! We took a large group picture for our family here last week.

I've seen it in the fall and in the winter and each season brings it's own characteristics to it to make it look unique.

Want to see a covered bridge without going to Jackson Maine? This will do and the visit won't take much of your time if you are around Sunday River and Newry.

Loved it. Crystal Clean Water. Unreal Views. We loved every aspect of the bridge and stream. It is a must stop when in the Sunday River area.

this covered bridge is a little hidden gem that most look over as they see the signs on the roadsides. However, there is a narrow river that streams below and if you do have a half an hour or so to just sit on the side and breath in the clean fresh air while allowing your feet to enjoy the... More

A very pleasant little spot to stop and walk around but, if you have the time to sit and enjoy the sound of the river and the breezes in the trees, it is an almost mystical spot. I have been to the bridge alone and with my family and they were two completely different experiences - both enjoyable in different... More

This was a nice little stop while on our travels. It was a nice quiet view. Is great to stop and stretch your legs and take in the scenery

Each of the many covered bridges is unique--enjoy driving thru some & just the walk thru others. Walking thru Sunday River Bridge is great, because you can really see how the bridge is constructed. The intricate wood pegs of long ago. Good spot for pictures.

My husband and I stopped by for a few minutes as it was a recommended "thing to do" in the area. It's a cool bridge with a nice view of the river, and really cool to stand on the bridge as the river gushes beneath you. We noticed a hiking trail on the side but we had just gotten back... More
