Is there anything more New England than a covered bridge?
Covered bridges draw visitors from far and wide, and tend to be few and far between, but here in the Mt. Washington Valley, we have 5 of our own! 5! So next time you’re in the White Mountains, plan to spend a little time checking out the covered bridges in the Conway area.
Albany, NH – This covered bridge crosses the swift river and can be found off a side trail that splits off the Kancamagus Highway (six miles west of N.H. Route 16 on Dugway Road). (Shown during 2 seasons.)
Bartlett, NH – Crossing the Saco River, this covered bridge is found west of Route 302 (4.5 miles east of Bartlett Village) and is now a gift shop opened seasonally, seven days a week from Memorial Day weekend until October, 10am-5pm.
Conway, NH – There are two covered bridges in Conway. One crosses the Saco, and the other crosses the Swift River.The Saco River bridge is ½ mile north of Rt 16 at Conway Village (Can be seen on the left hand side following Rt 16 north). The Swift River Bridge is ½ mile north of Rt 16 at Conway Village (Located very close to the Saco River Covered Bridge).
