This happened to be the first stop my husband and I made on a driving tour of different covered bridges throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. The first sight of your first covered bridge is pretty special, even with a smaller one like this, but it...More

There are many of these covered bridges about and all quirky and different. Picturesque place and lovely walks around.

We walked across Packard Bell Bridge and enjoyed the cool breeze and relaxed next to the river. It was not difficult to find, and we could park near by. Had we known it was this enjoyable, we would have brought a picnic lunch.

This covered bridge was nice to see. We drove over the one lane road and walked back along the footpath on one side. There is a small parking lot for a few cars. Nice view from the bridge.

It located very conveniently near the Northern Rail Trail. It's particularly scenic as are most covered bridges in the New England area. There is a nicely kept parking area with and nice landscaped picnic area.

Want to go back in time?? If you are near Lebanon , NH it is worth the time to drive through this bridge. It is one thing to view the bridge but driving through the bridge is necessary to get the full experience.

On a road that runs parallel to route 4 in Lebanon, I often drive this way on my way home. New Hampshire is home to 54 covered bridges and this one should be one to see. It's only one lane wide, but still really cool...More

A very nice covered bridge in good condition. Not only is it nice to walk across, but there's a good vantage place and parking just below it.
