The Five-Mile Covered Bridge Ride

Take full advantage of your time spent in Amish country by experiencing a ride through a real covered bridge on a back country road. With this ride, you’ll be taken through beautiful Amish farmland and hills, so that you can see more of Lancaster County.

This is the only ride that will take you through an authentic covered bridge on a back country road; no other buggy ride offers that. Many covered bridges have been built recently as attractions, or have fallen into disrepair. This covered bridge dates back to the 1800’s, and has been maintained by the combined effort of Paradise and Gordonville townships. The bridges are covered by a roof, to protect the weakest parts of the bridge from weather. There’s more to see with this ride, including an Amish School house and a Limestone barn. When the country roadside stand is open, our driver will also make a stop for you to purchase some Amish baked goods. The Amish children working the stand will tell you what has been freshly baked, and bring it to you in the buggy.

This ride is a favorite for many who want to see the most of what Lancaster County has to offer. Visitors love the sound of the horses’ hooves on the wood of the bridge, and the opportunity to ask the driver questions they have about Amish life and culture.
