Hartland Covered Bridge, Hartland

(160+ reviews on the web)
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • Nice place to stretch your legs and enjoy the bridge. Gift shop was nice. Loved the food truck, awesome fish and chips!
  • Saw the road sign and stopped by. Fun to drive through and not far off road. The welcome center was not opened and that would have been nice.
  • Although just driving through, it's still beautiful to see and an experience to drive through.
  • That's funny how we can make a famous bridge from a short covered road...
  • I loved the experience that I had there. I wish it was a 2 lane bridge though...
