Vermont Covered Bridges

I had a great ride searching for covered bridges in Vermont. I covered about 360 miles and found 20 bridges, one was missing due to the hurricane last year.

I have all the covered bridges in my gps and it was like a treasure hunt. I couldn't see the bridge but the gps would say " waypoint in 300 feet, 100 feet "

Here is a video and I have more photos to post later.

Is you run the video full screen and at 1080p it is really cool.

Great video Mike. I like the perspective of the camera going through the bridges. Do you have a list of the bridges you visited?

What I like about visiting the covered bridges is you can go every year and you'll see something different. Never gets boring.

Nice work!

I'm heading up to VT next week. You have inspired me to pick off a few covered bridges.

Thumb Great Video...

Neat video! I enjoyed the perspective and really liked the music choice. I'll have to check out some covered bridges in my travels.

When I see this on a sunny day I know it's going to be a great ride.

Most of the time I couldn't see the bridge until I was close.

Williamsville Bridge






Not much room !




Each one is a little different.

I loved the bridges on the dirt roads.







The Worrall bridge was just finished being fixed and the workers let me be the first to ride through










The Bartonsvil bridge was washed away by Irene and the debris was what damaged the bridge down stream in the above pictures.

Good stuff. I dig covered bridges. My wife and I are considering a ride here in SW Pa to see a bunch of the covered bridges in the area.
