The length of this covered bridge is very impressive!! We had a picnic lunch in the little adjacent park. You can drive through - one lane.

Was close by and decided to take a diversion. This was well worthwhile. It was a fine early evening so the river views were glorious and the covered bridge was a good example of the New England bridges.

West Corwall has not changed in 300 years. One of the last covered bridges in Connecticut. Worth a 2-3 hour detour from Manhattan.
