One of two remaining covered bridges over the Trout Creek in Waterford, New Brunswick is the Moores Mills Covered Bridge. Upstream from the nearby Urney Covered Bridge, the Moores Mills Covered Bridge is one of a plethora of covered bridges to be discovered near Sussex, New Brunswick and along the back way to the Fundy Trail Parkway by way of Adair's Wilderness Lodge.
Also known as Trout Creek Bridge #5, the Moores Mills Covered Bridge was built in 1923. This bridge is built using a Howe truss design for covered bridges, much like some of the other covered bridges found nearby. The bridge spans 64 feet long, or about 19 meters in length, and unlike some other covered bridges I've encountered in New Brunswick, I didn't find a headache bar on the road leading up to the bridge.
I enjoyed the Moores Mills Bridge for its peaceful settings and surroundings. While I did not dip my feet into Trout Creek on that early May morning I visited, it is said that the creek is usually shallow enough to wade in to get some good side photos of the covered bridge.
