Did you know that a small town in Ontario is home to a world record? Here’s what to know about the town of Latchford, Ontario.
About a five-hour’s drive north of Toronto is Latchford, a small town with a big heart. It’s a mighty town with a lot to offer outdoor explorers and history buffs.
Whether you’re looking to embark on a hike or paddle along the surrounding waters, it embraces local traditions that you can’t just enjoy in city life.
It’s home to 10 different trails, a Logger’s Hall of Fame, the Latchford Museum, a stunning memorial bridge, and the world’s shortest covered bridge, according to the town’s site.
“Don’t miss the unique opportunity to stop and view the World’s Shortest Covered Bridge, according to the Guinness World Book of Records,” shares the site.
The bridge spans 3.4 metres long and holds one lane of traffic and one lane of walkers.
It’s a looker, that’s for sure!
If you decide to make the trip to see the bridge in person, make sure to add Cobalt, Ontario to your itinerary. This Ontario town just so happens to be the most historic in all of the province. So much so that there are buildings still standing from the early 1900s.
Now that’s what we call a sightseeing trip!
