Ellis Covered Bridge

Ellis Covered Bridge – Built 1909

North Becaguimec River #4 was built in 1909 and is 18.3 metres long. This bridge is on a bit of a side road that is good until the bridge. The river at this point looks like an amazing fishing spot. This one is very easy to get to and very close to Hartland and Florenceville bridges.

Nackawic Siding Covered Bridge

Nackawick Siding Bridge – Built 1927

This bridge is the Nackawic River #5 bridge from 1927 and 18.3 metres long. This is one of the more remote bridges and the road to get to it is eroded about 1km from the bridge but was passible with guidance and rocks placed over the ditch from the North Side. Accessing this bridge from the south by car is better, but you cannot take a normal car across at the bridge due to road conditions.

There is a heat shack neat by for the NB Trail users and this area is beyond beautiful there is a trail that goes along the river to get a great view of this bridge

Budd Bridge

Budd Bridge – Built 1913

This is the Cocagne River #5 Bridge. Built in 1913 it is 25.3 metres long.

This bridge you must approach from the south. The north route is faster from the main road but as you turn on to this screen you are on the top of the ridge and get to see the most breathtaking view of the whole Cocagne River Valley and can see forever. Trust me just do it.

Poirier Covered Bridge

Poirier Bridge – Built 1942

Cocagne River #3 Bridge built in 1942 is 41 metres long. This bridge is near Moncton and is semi-remote to get to. The road to it is not the greatest and I stopped a short walk away and walked to the bridge. It is a calm and quite area and the Cocagne River is cute but not fast moving like the area around it.

This bridge is unique in the crisscross sides.

Joshua Gallant Covered Bridge

Joshua Gallant Covered Bridge – Built 1935

This 1935 Shediac River #4 Bridge is the 1st of my non-accessible bridge. It is on the NB Trails system just a short walk from the road. It is in a little valley that has an amazing little river passing through. This is a 25.6m long bridge.

Wheaton Covered Bridge

Wheaton Covered Bridge – Built 1916

Tantramar River #2 bridge is the furthest east covered bridge in New Brunswick. Built in 1916, this bridge is 49.7 metres long. This bridge can be seen for a long distance as it is the only structure in a far distance in every direction on the marsh and farmland in this part of the province.

Lattice truss, this is more but not completely rare in covered bridges.
