We were staying at a B & B close to this bridge, so it was only a short drive. The setting is quite scenic, down in a valley between the mountains, with plenty of trees around and a pretty river that runs under it. We parked the car and walked around to absorb the atmosphere and just breathe in the... More

This scenic bridge, which is still in use in rural Vermont, outside of Stowe. It is said to be haunted, but we saw no signs of it during our visit.

I stopped by here because it was listed as a haunted attraction in Stowe. It was a beautiful bridge and lovely area. I had read online while researching how to get here that it was in a residential area, so keep that in mind when visiting. I came during the day so as to not disturb those living close by.... More

Found Emily's Bridge on Tripadvisor. It is very close to Stowe and worth stopping for pictures. It is in a quiet location so you are not on a main thoroughfare or in danger of heavy traffic. You can easily go down to the stream below to also get good photos. I especially liked the "speed limit"sign posted on the bridge:... More

Excellent example of covered bridge construction. Currently in use. Picture-perfect setting with the brook and fall foliage. It is away from the downtown tourist area. It is real Vermont. Be certain to find and photograph this covered bridge. Check to see if the "farmers market" is across the street.

For some reason I am really interested in these covered bridges in Vermont. This one had a history as well with a local girl dying here (many years ago) and is reportedly haunted. Make your own mind up but really interesting (if you like that sort of thing!,,) don't miss it.

It's just outside town and really meets the expectation of a classic Vermont covered bridge with nice scenery about.

Easy to get to with a short drive from center of Stowe. Nice little covered bridge. We visited in fall and the foliage nearby made it special to view. The brook below was nice for photographers.

Never realised that this little covered bridge is haunted until after the day we visited. Haven't seen any ghost of Emily though 😄 but it's worth a visit if you're in Stowe.

We were driving round the Stowe area and decided to visit this covered bridge. We ended up driving along a dirt road down some very steep hills to get there. It's a pretty bridge which is old, but there wasn't much water in the river when we were there. Worth a visit.
