Pine Valley Covered Bridge: Near Doylestown, Bucks County

The countryside of Bucks County is just beautiful. Carriage House Inns from the 18th and 19th centuries abound along the many old toll roads from the colonial days and early days of the nation. Other historical remnants include the Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle, a number of old stone bridges and beautiful covered bridges, and more. Pine Valley Covered Bridge near Doylestown is beautiful.
Beautiful Pine Valley Park is adjacent to the covered bridge. Peace Valley Park is also located nearby. Both parks have pretty little lakes.
The stone abutments leading up to the covered bridge span are almost as impressive as the bridge itself. The old stone structures in this region of the state are so impressive.
The bridge itself is in excellent condition. The span is 81 feet long and it has a robust and impressive Town Truss structure. It was built with native hemlock and pine by David Sutton in 1842. 
It is located on Old Iron Hill Road in New Britain, just outside of Doylestown. It is well worth checking out if you are in the area.
