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.

    We had to stop to see the Hartland Covered Bridge in NB as we live very close to the Westmontrose Covered Bridge in Ontario! Both are awesome! You have to kiss as you drive through each one!  more »

    This is a great place. A great gift shop. And decent walkway on the bridge. Nice flowers. I think there is even a canteen in the area. (I didn't go there)

    Tourists gotta remember this is a working town with a rich and vibrant history. In 1898 the townsfolk approached the provincial government for funds to build a steel bridge and were denied. They had to expand their market catchment. So the town itself built this bridge communally from their profits. The Hartland Covered Bridge is a monument to the vitality of local democracy.

    Cool little spot. Bridge is nice and the worlds longest covered bridge. Not a ton to do in Hartland though

    Amazing. More than a bridge, this is an actual tunnel..... Maybe some windows could help brighten up the interior, but I guess that is the whole point to have it like that.....
