Tour of Bucks County Covered Bridges
When: meet at 12:30 pm, depart at 1:00 pm
(rain date 8/22 -- check your email for updates)
Where: We will meet in the large parking lot across from Wells Fargo Bank. It starts and ends at Washington Crossing PA. This is on the Delaware river (eastern edge of PA, western edge of NJ).There are 12 covered bridges on this tour and it takes approximately 3.5-4 hours to complete the total loop. The total distance is 95-100 miles, so be sure you have a decent charge on your car. Most covered bridges do not have stopping/parking areas, but a couple do have an opportunity for photo ops. Some require parking and a little walking as they are not all "car" bridges.
We will be following the official route as posted on the website here.
Please familiarize yourself with this map /set of directions. The tour goes around Bucks county in a big counterclockwise circle and is mainly small curvy roads with great scenery. We highly recommend printing the directions from the website above due to intermittent cell signal in the area. We will have a few printed copies if you forget yours and need one.
