  • Beautiful setting best seen in summer but this was my GF's first look so we wandered around. This has been rebuilt, sadly, because of a fire. 
  • a beautiful spot particularly in early morning or late evening. I always bring out of town guests here. lovely view of the river ... great place to see in the fall. 
  • We visited the Wakefield covered bridge on October 12, 2016. We enjoyed the discovery of this covered bridge, especially as the day was beautiful, sunny and warm, and we have us sit a few moments on flat stones below the bridge, allowing us to admire the bridge, the river and the change of colors while taking a sun bath. Our visit to the bridge lasted about 15 mins: we crossed the bridge on foot (it is now forbidden to cars) and read some explanation of the life of the first bridge, its destruction by fire, then its reconstruction. We found it interesting to see and understand the bridge's wooden structure. It was hot in the heart of reading that the bridge was rebuilt after the fire through donations and volunteers. To see if you are in Wakefield.

  • Probably the single most popular reason why people come to Wakefield. The museum and hiking trails adjacent to the bridge makes this a full-day, or weekend excursion. Or bring the floaties and arrange for a pickup downriver.
  • The covered bridge is perhaps the most familiar and beloved landmark in Wakefield. It is worth a stop and a walk when visiting the town, or worth a few hours if you want to swim on the rocks underneath in the summer. There is a quaint little local museum called the Fairbarn House kitty corner to the bridge that you can visit if you are there, and it is surrounded by lovely walking trails.
  • Simply marvellous. Provided more than enough covered bridge length to allow my running partner to practice toe-running without exposing herself to the wind.
  • A great place to visit and chill on the shores of the Gatineau River.
  • Nice spot for som pictures
