The bridge itself is probably just an excuse to take a walk across and then take the trail (old railway) to the center of Wakefield. From there you can walk on one of the trails that will take you to the top of the mountain...More

This charming bridge was built on the site from 1915; it was destroyed by fire. Through fundraising events from locals the bridge was rebuilt and opened again in 1998. It was so well built, the scenery around is spectacular. Explore this hidden country charm!

This is a staple for the Wakefield in Ottawa area… I must say to anyone from out of town. Stunning on a sunny day.

Whilst visiting Wakefield, Quebec visited the town's covered bridge. Well worth a detour to walk across this lovely wooden bridge with plates explaining how built.

First one I have ever seen, so it was a must-do stop while in Wakefield. You can only walk or cycle on the bridge.
