Restored in 2006 and located in the heart of the Adirondacks, the Jay Covered Bridge is worth the stop!

Originally erected in 1857, it was restored to its original state in 2006. The only bridge traffic allowed is pedestrian and bicycle. The bridge resides over the east branch of the Ausable River.

It is currently listed on the State Register of Historic Places.

In the warmer months, the covered bridge swimming hole, located right next to the Jay Covered Bridge, makes for a great swimming hole.
