Hartland Covered Bridge, Hartland

4.4
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.

  • Hartland is a small town founded by loyalists and is located in the middle of the Kingdom of the NB potato culture. One of the longest bridges covered wooden (391 meters) and in the form of barn overlooking the St. John River. Cross that bridge in both directions; a single span, it flows in one direction at a time. Walk inside d bridge & observe the landscape and the St_Jean River if you are hungry, there is a small snack on the north side of the bridge, right next to the bridge where you can observe the landscape. No d, admission fees. Not to be missed

  • We took a little detour on the way back to see this covered bridge-the longest in the world, they say here proudly. The bridge crosses the river Saint John, and is approximately 400 metres long, 1282 feet. Is actually remarkable lead us inside, the structure is completely exposed. Beside the bridge, Hartland side, there is a small souvenir shop, with articles quite interesting — and a beautiful cat!
