Nice spot to view the river.

Rebuilt - nice way to explore the river. Pity they need no smoking signs, but OK... Head over and down the bank for a cool spot in the summer, gorgeous in the fall.

I am a very lucky girl because my father-in-law's house is right next to this landmark. If you get a chance to visit the piece of American history, you should do so. This bridge sits atop a lovely part of the Salmon River and my husband as a young boy and now our grandchildren get to play in this lazy... More

The address is wrong on trip advisor. The actual address is comstock bridge rd, corner of rt16east and comstock bridge road. Nice fishing spot, trails and bridge.

Popular spot for swimming, fishing, photography, painting and hiking. One of the few covered bridges left in Connecticut.

Walked across, walked back. It was made out of wood, had a roof. I couldn't be anymore impressed. I recommend that bridge to all my friends.

The covered bridge over the Salmon River was AWESOME. Walking through history was enlightening. Took our shoes off and waded in the cool river water - 2 year old granddaughter loved every minute. Not many covered bridges remain. This is truly an experience not to be missed.

Bring your camera. There are many scenic photos to be taken here at any time of year. We have brought relatives from California one of whom is a professional photographer. He was over the moon with the area. Another who came last summer from Australia felt the same way. She had been all over eastern Europe and loved the beauty... More

If you are into old bridges of unique design, this bridge is for you. Otherwise, it is not worth driving out of your way to visit. It had fallen into disrepair and a few years ago, was totally rebuilt. One of three such bridges remaining in Connecticut, it is not near anything else of significance although it sits just off...

A beautiful rebuilt covered bridge. Follow the road up the river to find nice fly fishing areas and other great places to enjoy the salmon river.

We read about the rich history behind this bridge and drove well over 30 minutes from our hotel to arrive at it. We were disappointed immediately! Looks brand new. We did get out and take many pictures of it, walk through it and look it over inside and out. About the only original portion of it is the part you... More
