Easily Accessible Covered Bridge
Feb 2017 • Family
These bridges are getting more and more rare as time goes and certainly not as many that can still be crossed. This one is easily accessible if you are un the Wilmington Area. You can also see it on your way through a tour of the Wilmington Western Railroad, which is also a great tour nearby.

No cost and beautiful surroundings especially in the Spring and Fall.

Traditional coverd bridge
Apr 2017 • Solo
Something found primarily in the northeastern part of the U.S., the coverd bridge is an interesting and scenic part of history. Many have been torn down or replaced so it is nice to see one still standing and in use.

Nice covered bridge
Nov 2016 • Couples
DE has several covered bridges so this is not all that remarkable, it is in a very pretty part of the state so if you are just out for a drive on a nice day, sure, take a side trip just to see this lovely part of DE I use it all the time to get from here to there so it's lovely but not remarkable.

Quaint covered bridge
Dec 2016 • Family
You feel like you're out in the country when you are only a quarter mile off a major road ( Rte 48). The Wilmington and Western railroad comes through on weekends and that adds to the charm.

Romantic Bridge
Sep 2016 • Solo
This bridge brings memories of past times. It is well constructed and the view around it is not cluttered. It is a little narrow, I guess enough for a horse and carriage or a single car.
Beautiful fall leaf views.

Neat replica of an 1850's bridge
May 2015 • Couples
We saw this bridge during our Wilmington & Western Railroad ride to the Mt Cuba Picnic area. It is a neat bridge. The bright red really stands out against the trees and water below. It does not look very wide or long. Our train guide told us a little about it as we passed it. It peaked my interest. So, when I got home I read up on it. It was interesting to read that the original bridge, built in 1850, was destroyed by a flood in 2003. This replica was built in 2008.

If you don't want to try to find it by driving, you can always ride past in on the Wilmington & Western Railroad. But, IF you want time to walk across/drive across OR get some great photos, you will probably want to drive since the train just keeps on going!
