The Felton Covered Bridge is a covered bridge over the San Lorenzo River in Felton, Santa Cruz County in the U.S. state of California. Built in 1892, the bridge employs a Brown truss structural system and is approximately 80 feet long. The bridge became a California Historical Landmark in 1957, was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, and had a major restoration in 1987 after being damaged in storms in the winter of 1982.
It is considered to be the tallest covered bridge in the United States, and was the main entry point for Felton for 45 years.
The bridge is no longer used on the roadway, but is accessible to pedestrians visiting the Felton Covered Bridge Park.

  • This is a good family park. There is a play area for children, and large lawns to run and play. The Redwood trees, the river, and Felton Covered Bridge add to the special ambiance here. It is a place where one can put down their phone and experience some of the other important things in life.... if one would want. There are sometimes homeless here. They seem to enjoy the nature of these woods also.
  • The most beautiful park. As you drive down into Felton its the first thing you see. Wonderful Park with swings and jungle gym also sand box. The Covered Bridge is open to foot traffic and is lit up at the holidays.
