Vermont is one of our favorite states for exploring covered bridges! With just over 100 covered bridges in the state, this gives Vermont the highest number of covered bridges per square mile in the USA!
Ride Guide VT gives you 5 covered bridges you can visit in a day. We started our day in Massachusetts, taking Route 495 and heading north. Since we travel by motorcycle, we like to take as many back roads as we can. Therefore, we try not to stay on the highway for too long!
You can use your GPS and/or maps and plan out your ride based on where you are starting and where you want to end! If you would like to see the exact roads and routes we took, you can refer to our earlier post titled Vermont Covered Bridges. That post gives turn-by-turn directions.
Green River Covered Bridge
We really enjoyed this bridge and the area. Although this bridge is on a dirt road, it is a very pretty, scenic, country road, and that is what we love!
There are plenty of areas to pull over and take pictures, and this bridge is still open for vehicle traffic.

We took our ride here in the spring, and it didn’t disappoint! The flowers are amazing! Although this bridge is now closed to vehicle traffic, there is a nice little parking lot, picnic area, flower garden/area and you can walk through the bridge.
