I have lived around here for years, and we stop there once in a whi8le, It's a nice old covered bridge, nice clear brook under it, barn board and old pegged timbers. Legend has it that it's haunted by a young girl named Emily. I'll let you be the judge of that,

Easy to find, not far from Rt 100. Definitely worth the detour. Bridge is in a beautiful spot to look at Gold Brook. If you drive over the bridge you will be on a scenic, dirt road that will bring you out just above the school and "downtown" Stowe. The road has several antique homes on it that are beautiful....

We were on a "leaf peeping" and covered bridge tour of Vermont. It was great fun doing the scavenger hunt to find all the bridges. It was a beautiful autumn drive to this bridge and well worth the trip. Local legend says that a young lady, Emily, lost her life here - some claim the bridge is haunted. The stories... More

Having visited a number of covered bridges in Vermont and New Hampshire although not the biggest this one offers a bit more scenery. With the river and the Autumn colours in the background it is a good photo opportunity

This is an old single lane bridge. Well worth the short drive to see it and take some pictures. Get directions to the bridge from the tourist information center.

They don't advertise this very much and a certain map app was confusing when trying to locate the bridge. My husband was able to go down the ravine to get some great photos of the rushing water, foliage, and bridge. Be aware of the cars using the bridge.

Easy parking to walk to view the bridge. The area around the bridge is easy to walk, but do need to watch the traffic crossing the bridge when walking on the bridge. Make sure to read the story.

This was one of several covered bridges that we stopped to take a look at while in the area. It's said that is is haunted because a young girl hung herself from the rafters when the young man that she betrayed her family's wishes for didn't show up to elope with her. We didn't see any ghosts, but we enjoyed... More
