Bridge · Landmark
The Smolen–Gulf Bridge is a covered bridge which carries State Road (Ashtabula County Road 25) across the Ashtabula River at the Plymouth and Ashtabula Township line in northern Ashtabula County, Ohio, United States. At 613 feet (182.9 meters), it is the longest covered bridge in the United States – a title formerly held by the Cornish–Windsor Covered Bridge in New Hampshire – and the fourth longest covered bridge in the world. The bridge, one of 17 drivable covered bridges in the county, was designed by John Smolen, former Ashtabula County Engineer when the idea of bridging the Ashtabula River Gulf with a wooden structure was first conceived in 1995.

  • Living in the county you sometimes what is right in front of us. This is truly a amazing bridge but did take some people time to absorb the new way you drive OVER the gulf instead of driving down in.....  more »
  • Beautiful place to take friends or family for many different reasons. The walking trail is long and growing. Leading through most of the town with a well kept and very appealing visual experience. People fish, bird watch, picnic, run, walk, or just sit and take in the nature that's finally settling back in.
  • Neat bridge. Pretty park like area surrounding it. Nice walking path to check out the little wooden bridge I've the creek.
