A Beautiful and very long covered bridge, in Cornish,NH. We pulled over to a parking spot to walk over to take pics of it. Then we rode in it and back through the other side. The water was so pretty too. I think I captured it nicely in my pics.

Stopped by this landmark on a day trip exploring the area, while headed south from a weekend in NH. This bridge is the longest covered bridge in the US and the longest dual lane covered bridge in the world. Although the site itself is not exciting, it is a nice area w/other small places of interest near-by. Great opportunity to... More

A beautiful site in a quaint New England town. Built in 1866, it is the longest wooden bridge in the US.

This beautiful historic covered bridge spans the Connecticut River between New Hampshire and Vermont. There is parking near it on the New Hampshire side. Since New Hampshire owns the river, the rebuilding process was mostly on the New Hampshire taxpayers. It is a grand bit of construction and a beautiful view of Mt Ascutney. I use this bridge quite often... More

This wonderful bridge spans the Connecticut river between Cornish NH and Windsor VT. Still the longest wooden covered bridge in US and has the longest covered single span to carry automobile traffic. I love the way the tree branches are cut approaching the bridge.

We were out on a 40 mile bike ride finding as many covered bridges as possible. This was the longest one over the Connecticut River.

BEWARE that this is still VERY much a working bridge and people do NOT drive slowly!!! However, if you choose to walk on the bridge, the structure is amazing!!! The longest span covered bridge in New Hampshire (owned by the town of Cornish, NH) and one of the longest in the world!! Don't forget to visit Saint-Gaunden's National Historical Site... More

A very pretty sight from the road, it is fun to drive through. The inside construction is really interesting to see. We had not realized we had gone to Vermont until we came back out to a big Welcome to New Hampshire sign! Very close to the Saint Gaudens National Park that I highly recommend!

To me, all covered bridges are wonderful. This one is exceptional for the length alone, connecting Vermont and New Hampshire. It is well maintained, drivable and beautiful. That about covers it.
