COVERED BRIDGES

I traveded the Erie Coastal Trail in Ohio to visit three covered bridges located there.  The Smolen-Gulf Covered Bridge is the longest covered bridge in the United States.  The bridge is 613 ft. long and stands 93 ft. above the Ashtabula River.  Harpersfield Covered Bridge is a two-span Howe Truss bridge and is 228 ft. long.  It is the second longest covered bridge in Ohio, built in 1868 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  The third longest single-span covered bridge in Ashtabula County is the Merchaniesville Road Covered Bridge.  This 156 ft. Howe Truss with arch was built over Grand River in 1867.
