  • This scratched our itch to experience a covered bridge in VT. Beautiful spot, and the stream beneath was so picturesque with snow when we were there. However, a big complaint from a photography...

  • Really cool history here. The take if this bridge is A young woman named Emily planned to elope with her love. Their meeting place was this same bridge. But when he didn't show, Emily, filled with despair, hanged herself from the rafters of the Gold Brook Bridge. Some really nice picture taking. I wish it were nicer out as it was pouring rain but it didn't put a damper on our excursion. Great bridge to visit with a lot of history and folklore around it.
  • Great Covered Bridge! Beautiful views, and a small place to pull over where you can get out. The smell and vibe of these bridges is unique and beautiful! Easy to find as well!
