Built in 1996, this relatively new bridge allows hikers to cross the Cochecho River on their way around the Cochecho River Walk in Dover's Henry Law Park. The bridge is not open to vehicular traffic. It is the only covered bridge in the Seacoast Region. Prefabricated, the bridge was shipped to North Carolina and pressure treated, then returned to NH, assembled on shore and floated into place.
