Longest Covered Bridge in U.S.

In October 2016, a smaller pedestrian covered bridge was added to the park, underneath the Smolen-Gulf Bridge. It's worth a stop to get out and wander under the Longest Covered Bridge in the US!

Longest Covered Bridge in U.S.

It is my understanding that in addition to being the longest covered bridge in the country, it is also the highest above the water. Additionally, there is a scaled down, pedestrian version of the bridge on the trails below the bridge that also spans the river.

Beautiful bridge. If you want to walk across, park at the park office immediately before it.
