Leaving the Marie Antoinette Lookout, we continued driving west on U.S. Route 6. Located about 15 minutes northwest of Towanda PA is Bradford County’s only surviving covered bridge. I first learned of the Knapp’s Covered Bridge via an UncoveringPA.com article. I made a point to visit this bridge, when I realized that we would be within a few miles of it, on our way back home from our Pocono Mountains Weekend Getaway, Upon arriving in Towanda PA, I entered Knapp’s Covered Bridge into the GPS. The GPS had us turn off U.S. Route 6 onto Township Route 547 (Buttermilk Falls Road), which we followed to Covered Bridge Road. We turned left onto Covered Bridge Road, crossed over Knapp’s Covered Bridge, and parked on the right just beyond the bridge.
There is a 30 foot drop from the bridge to the creek bed, making this the highest bridge in Pennsylvania.
Knapp’s Covered Bridge has also been known as the Luther Mills Bridge or the Browns Creek Covered Bridge.
Our next stop on our drive back home was in Wellsboro, PA — the subject of my next blog post.
