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.

  • Longest covered bridge in the world, and in great condition. A nice break from a very long drive through New Brunswick.
  • loved this spot. Beautiful river, busy with fishermen or fisherwomen. Wished we could have stayed forever.
  • It's a bridge all right. No denying it. I drove across it, and that was an oddly impressive experience. It's quite beautiful.
  • It's a big bridge..walk through is a must. Located close the the highway
  • I cross this bridge every day going to work. Definately a tourist attraction if your in the area or travelling by. Please note there is a height restriction and is not passable by truck traffic.
