  • This is a place a visit many times during the spring, summer and fall. Recently added bridge down below crossing the creek is a great place to walk with friends and great for walking your pet.  more »
  • Took our kids, 3, 5, & 10 to see covered bridges. My 10 year old loved this bridge and enjoyed the walk across it. Great views especially when we visited in the fall. There is a brand new pedestrian c...  more »
  • The view is beautiful from the rest area or at the bottom of the bridge. Take a short ride down the hill, walk in the river, fish, have a picnic. I enjoy relaxing to the sound of the river.  more »
  • What a great place to visit. Peaceful and beautiful scenery. There is a brand new walking bridge below the big covered bridge. It is stunning. A must to see and visit.
  • This bridge, dedicated in 2008 is not historic, but it is still an engineering delight. Access from a parking lot with a sidewalk is wheelchair accessible. You can walk the length on a pedestrian-only portion.
  • 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!
  • Nice place to eat lunch, beautiful well maintained Park atmosphere.
  • Pretty basic architectural design
