What trip to New England to see the fall foliage would be complete without seeing a couple of covered bridges. This one is truly beautiful with a gorgeous backdrop. Don't miss it!

Stopped on our foliage tour and got some great pictures. Highly recommended. Easy to hike around and can pictures from many angles.

It's a covered bridge, people. But it's in good shape and makes a great "chapel" for weddings or other similar events.
