My wife and I visited Shelburne Falls, and thus the Bridge of Flowers, on our relaxing drive through the Mohawk Trail. For someone who isn't a 'flowerchild,' the bridge is quite amazing. There were many flowers actively blooming despite it being early October. The bridge was quite busy with visitors, but not too crazy. A must-stop at when in the area!

This is a gem just off the scenic byway. Literally a bridge of flowers...beautiful big blooms of all different variety and color. This is a walking bridge in the middle of town...crosses over a little river.

A lovely spot to stop and take a moment to enjoy the natural beauty of the incredible flowers and the location itself--a bridge over a quiet northern Massachusetts River (the Deerfield). Most of the plants are labeled for those curious to know what they're seeing, but one could enjoy this just as much strolling without stopping to read. It's a popular spot on beautiful late summer mornings (and presumably afternoons), and well worth your time.

The Bridge of Flowers together with the Shelburne Falls are well worth the trip. Of course visitors must walk across the bridge and stroll up to the falls. Singularly "New England" great history, and aesthetically fascinating. Highly instagram-able!

I have to admit I was not expected what a beautiful and unique place this would be.
Parking was easy to find.
The flowers, trees and bushes were amazing especially when you consider they are on a real pedestrian bridge (started of a a trolley bridge).
Most of the flowers and trees are labelled (could use more) .
Everything was so clean and well maintained.
And free.
Really enjoyed our visit and would visit again if we are in the area.
And free.

There’s nothing like it that I’ve seen before. I now want to see it in all four seasons! With the addition of the roaring river underneath, and the colorful houses and buildings serving as a backdrop, this is a must see!

Quaint. Exemplary. Small town with a proud history and an original and charming way to honor veterans and war casualties. Volunteers do the upkeep. So donate! Take your shots and then look around at the garden of humanity. Let’s take better care of each other! More bridges. More flowers. More attention must be paid.

Shelburne Falls is surrounded by lush mountains that are so appealing to the eyes, especially as the setting sun reflects on the trees and the temperature is in the 70s.

It has 2-4 hours of exploration to offer tourists. However, it only takes 45 minutes by car to Brattleboro, VT; over an hour to Londonderry and Jamaica State Park, VT; and an hour to Keene, NH. Furthermore, Shelburne Falls is within a day’s comfortable round trip driving distance to Saratoga Springs, NY.

MA Rt. 2 or Mohawk Trail is a scenic, hilly and windy road that is fun to drive whether in thick fog or bright sunshine. If you’re lucky, you may also have unexpected excitement as a black bear crosses Rt. 2 approximately three car lengths in front of your car 1-1.5 miles before the hairpin turn to climb to the town of North Adams on the way back to Shelburne Falls.

The Bridge of Flowers takes only a few minutes to cross but you may walk through it as many times as you want. It features a wide variety of beautiful and colorful flowers that are quite soothing and pleasurable to admire, including shrubs and dwarf, maybe bonsai, trees. It’s guests log shows that there are visitors in June 2021 from AZ, TX, FL, GA, NY, NJ, ME, VT, NH.

It is worth the trip!

an unnatural / natural use. we visited Shelburne ,Massachusetts whule hunting for covered bridges. this unnatural wonder must have blown up the minds of the community leaders when first proposed. what a great, beautifully wonderful idea. converting a single lane pedestrian bridge into a cultural wonder. and free to enjoy.
