Off the beaten track, linked to the Mohawk Trail, this was certainly well worth a visit. We, sadly, had a very overcast day, but it didn't diminish what the bridge is and what it means to the locals. Delightful spot, glad we made the effort.

I love the bridge of flowers. I stop here every time I am in the area. It is beautiful any time of year, even after the first frost. Very historic Shelburne Falls. Great location, off of Rt. 2. Doesn't take long to do.

Enjoyed the history and the flowers. After walking the bridge we enjoyed lunch on the water at nearby pub. Shelburne Falls should be very proud of this iconic bridge. Be sure to visit!
