Hartland Covered Bridge, Hartland
(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
With a claim to the title of world's longest covered bridge, Hartland Covered Bridge spans 391 m (1,282 ft). Seven Howe truss bridges joined over six piers form this historic bridge, which was built in 1901. Until then, the only way to cross the Saint John River had been by ferry. In 1980 the bridge was declared a National Historic Site of Canada, originally built for vehicles but later expanded with a pedestrian walkway. At one end of the bridge you'll find a parking lot where you can stop, walk the length of the bridge, take photos, and visit the gift shop and visitor center. Put Hartland Covered Bridge and other Hartland attractions into our Hartland family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
