At 204 feet, the Red Bridge, originally known as Wertz’s Bridge, is the longest single span covered bridge in Pennsylvania. Built in 1867 and one of five remaining in Berks County, the covered bridge allows hikers and bikers to pass over Tulpehocken Creek to the Union Canal Bicycle and Walking Trail and the Berks County Heritage Center. Red Bridge Recreation Area, located just south of Wertz’s Bridge on Tulpehocken Road, consists of a picnic pavilion, and badminton court.
