This one is great to see if you're in the area, but I've seen more scenic ones in NH. It isn't out of the way if you're in the area & the water/rock background is picturesque.

A short ride off the beaten bath, but well worth the detour. Fantastic photo possibilities. Great fly fishing for trout in the Sunday River, anytime of the year.

My brother & sister in law took us here last week while looking for good painting spots. It's a very pretty spot. Get out and look at the bridge from the river not just the spot off the road. The trees still had color so it was very nice.

A beautiful bridge unrestricted in walking around and under. Also attended a wedding there. If you do that PUT DOWN A CARPET. the minister dropped the groom's ring and it rolled into the river.

We saw quite a few covered bridges on our drive throughout Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont and this bridge ranks pretty near the top. We visited on a slightly rainy day and the soft colors and foggy weather certainly added led to picturesque quality of the bridge. Don't miss it if you're in the area.

Covered bridges are a very important part of our highway history so we loved to stop & take pictures here--just a little Americana. We took pictures of each other & the bridge from every possible view to add to our photo memories of our trip. I can simply imagine people stopping here for oh so many reasons one of being... More
