  • Wow, lots of thought went in to this thing. It is the longest covered bridge in the United States. Nice overlook to boot.

  • We love traveling to free and off the beaten path things..Smolen Gulf bridge is currently the world's largest covered bridge. It is part of Ashtabula covered bridge tour. You can walk or drive across it. There are plenty of areas for pictures. There is a parking area with a pavilion that has display of local history and the trails you can walk or bike from there. They are currently doing a lot of work to the park and trails to improve it! You can also walk along river bank and picnic or look at the geological formations that show northeast Ohio, shale and sandstone with mixtures of granite mixed throughout. There is a historical Indian trail along the river as well. This is a great spot for individuals, couples or families with kids of all ages. It is pet friendly as well. There was a porta potty but no running water except for what's in the river. It's a quiet peaceful place to spend a few minutes or hours!
  • Pretty basic architectural design
  • Love the walking lanes. And there is a waterfall view.
  • seen it walked acrossed it loved it will go back again
  • It's still worth a trip to go see
