Pretty w/ a fun history

Pretty bridge with a fun history of not only the structure but the haunting lore that surrounds it. Only a few minutes out of downtown, so it's worth a quick little stop.

The covered bridge is just awesome. If you go in the winter time make sure you have good tires. The road to the bridge is mostly dirt/mud especially in the wintertime. It was worth the trek though.

Covered bridges are just cool. This one is in excellent condition, and photogenic. There are a few tales about how this bridge is haunted. Whether it is or isn't it is still very cool!

This was not far from downtown Stowe and worth the trip. Very scenic. We like to drive across it every time we go to Stowe.

Nice scenic area. Pretty much just another covered bridge. Easy to find. Good photo opportunity . Parking area right next to the bridge is nice and safe. We were the only people there. Just a few minutes from downtown Stowe.

This is a nice covered bridge over Gold Brook, just south of Stowe. It is easy to find and there is minimal traffic around it so it is a good opportunity to get some nice photos. If you go to in on Gold Brook Road, leave going north. This will take you over some very nice country roads and lead... More

Emily's Bridge is beautiful but made even more interesting by the story of Emily. Take some time to visit. Very picturesque.

ghost hunters were at the bridge when we were there. Very scenic location, but no ghost in evidence...

My husband and I did a self-guided covered bridge tour on our recent trip to Vermont, which was amazing. This was our first stop on the tour. The bridge was a little hard to find, but well worth the effort. These bridges that are scattered all over the state are so beautiful!
