The Sentinel Pine Bridge is a covered wood footbridge that was designed from a single Sentinel Pine tree in Franconia Notch State Park, NH.

Near "The Pool", the towering tree used to stand at a height of 175 feet with a diameter measuring 5 meters or 16 feet and if alive today would have been around 265 years old.

Before the Revolutionary War, the King of England ordered all of the tallest trees in the area to be marked and were regularly cut down and sent back to England to be used building ships.

This tree was never cut down but eventually was taken down by a great hurricane on Sept. 21st, 1938 in the White Mountain forest.

One technique on this old wooden bridge is that much of the sheltering parts are joined using wooden pins which was a technique used by early settlers.

Also, the shingles on the covered part were hand made.
