No much to say about a covered bridge, but I enjoy looking at them. Not in a very good location along side the road, not too much room for many to pull off, but it is hard to miss.

We drove out of our way to visit and weren't disappointed. The bridge itself is beautiful, and the kids spent two hours swimming and collecting rocks. Very easy to access and beautiful! Highly recommend.

It was fun finding it nice scenery. The bridge you don't actually drive over any more, but it was nice they kept it. Took a few picks and left

Stopped here for a quick sight seeing. I believe it's in Newry, Maine (not Bethel) and is in pretty good condition. Wide dirt parking pull over spot in front of he bridge. Only about 2 miles from Sunday River Brew Pub.

Don't miss stopping by and seeing this little gem. You can park on either side and walk through it. Even better, bring your bathing suit and walk down to the river and swim right by it. A lovely location!

Just a quick little jaunt to the bridge. It is nice piece of history for Sunday River. The bridge was built in 1872 and they have kept it well maintained. There was a wedding party having pictures taken there the day we went and it...More

An interesting covered bridge near the Sunday river ski resort, and right down the road from the Sunday river brewing company. It's worth checking out if your in the area.

Kevin, Not sure why the map goes to the ski resort. Actually, I don't remember including a map.
