Red Bridge Recreation Area

2141 Tulpehocken Rd., Wyomissing PA 19610

The Red Bridge, originally known as Wertz's Bridge, at 220 feet is the longest single span covered bridge in Pennsylvania. Built in 1867 and one of five remaining in Berks County, the covered bridge allows pedestrians to pass over the Tulpehocken Creek to the Union Canal Bicycle and Walking Trail and the Berks County Heritage Center. The Red Bridge Recreation Area, located just south of Wertz's Bridge on Tulpehocken Road, consists of a picnic pavilion and badminton court.
