We were on motorcycles and this bridge has some history behind it. I won't go into detail, but the area around it is beautiful. Vermont has many covered bridges and this is just one of them. Postcard type pictures is all I can say.

Worth a stop for photos. We actually went to the location to look for a Geocache. Was pleasantly surprised at the condition and beauty of the area. There is parking right on the NH side.

This is by far the longest, largest covered bridge we encountered in our "tour of the covered bridges". This bridges crosses the Connecticut River and has two spans. It is still in use and carries a surprising amount of traffic. This bridge may not be as quaint as others we encountered, but is impressive never the less. Other bridges in... More

Longest covered bridge in US. Worth the trip. Built 1866. Major restoration in the early 80's. I grew up here and we used to bicycle across and als sneak out through the little trap door on the North side and sit on the center abutment.

I've traveled extensively and in my opinion the Connecticut River is the most beautiful river in the world. This covered bridge is just one of the attractions. This one, one of the longest in America, is very scenic. It links Vermont to New Hampshire.There's a parking spot on the New Hampshire side with a historic marker. Oddly enough, this is... More

Links Vermont with New Hampshire. Owned by NH. Old fashioned bridge. Historic and picturesque. Great view of the river from the NH side. Though I live only about 1/2 mi. from it, I love going over it and often stop for the view of the river.

6 of us (3 adults, 2 teens and a tween) went across the bridge ... and stopped on the NH side to read the sign MUST READ SIGN The best though, is when you're entering the bridge from the NH side - there's a "fine" warning sign... telling you you must walk your horse. Talk about awesome design, and construction... More

The bridge is a must see. Built in 1866, it does not appear to have any noticeable wear and tear. It is a piece of history that you can drive through. We did 4 times. I always wonder if the individuals that built the bridge had any idea that the bridge would last as long as it has. Hats off... More

This is a wonderful (long, very long, heck, the longest) covered bridge. One of many in VT, all worth stopping to see, take pictures of, and marvel at what we use to do and how as old as they are, covered bridges still play a part in our daily lives.

What prompted the building of covered bridges? How come they are endemic to Northern New England? If you visit this one be sure to visit the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site. You'll leave inspired.
