Hartland Covered Bridge, Hartland

4.5
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.

  • The 7-day Tour East Bus trip that I’m traveling on stopped here; we have 50 tourists in our group. The $222.50 attractions package includes access to the Whale Watching Boat Tour, Thousand Island Boat Tour, Hopewell Rocks, Maritime Museum, etc., of which this attraction is one of the experiences. As the longest covered bridge in the world, I enjoyed my 3rd trip to the 1,282 foot Hartland Covered Bridge. Not bad for a structure that is over 116 years old spanning the St. John River; opened July 4, 1901. Historic and Scenic Canada 🇨🇦
  • This is a beautiful bridge to cross and take pictures. It's the longest covered bridge in the world. Loved it.
  • Always stop here when travelling to the East Coast. Very picturesque. Unfortunately, the bridge was closed today to vehicle traffic. You can still walk across the pedestrian walkway. Looks like they may be doing construction.
  • After visiting, tried to drive via Woodstock to Fredericton along St John river but the road is closed after passing through Woodstock. This historical site is quite interesting, not many visitors after the summer holidays.
  • After 44 years I finally stopped in to visit this place. Definitely worth the trek off the highway to see it.
