Covered Bridge Trails
Take a ride to a simpler time, when milkman and paperboy crossed routes in rush-hour traffic. Berks County’s grand old covered bridges are a whole new definition of “drive-through”… so ease off your accelerator and power up your appetite for exploration. Rattle the boards through enchanted shadows, swirling with stories of stolen kisses and generations of departed souls. Dare to unplug for the day—or the weekend—and tune in to the tempo of a horse’s gait, a bird’s song or the rhythm of the creek under your own foot steps. For in every creak of our covered bridge floorboards is the heritage of more than one hundred years of yesterdays. Soldiers and spirits, travelers and tourists, drivers and dreamers- they’ve all been there.
The Covered Bridge Tour is a self-guided driving tour which takes about 3 hours to complete.
