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.

When we saw this bridge, we could not resist the urge to drive across it. Although it was day, the bridge was rather dark inside. This made it feel like a tighter fit than it was. At times I wondered if two cars were supposed to be going through the bridge in opposite directions at the same time. The New... More

The Blacksmith Shop bridge crosses over Mill Brook and is closed to vehicles. Built in 1881, the bridge was only used by a single family accessing their property. The bridge was named Blacksmith Shop Bridge because it was located near a blacksmith shop.

"This is the longest wooden covered bridge in the United States and the longest two-span covered bridge in the world." We crossed this beautiful bridge while driving from Vermont into New Hampshire. Then we got back in the car and did it again -- twice! The old sign is a hoot! "WALK YOUR HORSES OR PAY TWO DOLLARS FINE"... My... More

What can I say--it's a covered bridge. Of course, for someone living in New England, I am a bit jaded. If you have never seen or driven through a covered bridge, this is one of the finer ones.
