McCann Covered Bridge

McCann Bridge – Built 1938

Also known as the Digdeguash River # 4 Bridge, this is one beauty of a bridge. At only 26.6m it is fairly short but fits in well to the neighbouring area. This bridge is at the end of a curve in the road and the view as you come up to the bridge as it is hugged into the forest is amazing.

MaGuire Covered Bridge

MaGuire Covered Bridge – Built 1913.

Officially the Digdeguash River #3, this 1913 bridge is located in the middle of nowhere remote from modern time. It is 35 metres long and has one of the most incredible vistas. The road to get here is in great condition and well worth a look.

Starkey Bridge

Starkey Bridge, built in 1912

Officially the Long Creek #1 bridge, this bridge is in very poor shape. Built-in 1912 was one of many bridges in the area that have been mostly replaced with steel bridges. This is the oldest of two remaining bridges in Queen’s County. This bridge is 41.5 metres long.

It appears like this bridge or at least the roads to and from it were picked up and dropped by recent unprecedented flooding. Given that there is a near by alternative route across this body of water, this road is not really needed and very unlikely this bridge will be ever used again.
