The Aline Covered Bridge, also known as Meiserville Covered Bridge, is a historic covered bridge located in Perry Township near Meiserville in Snyder County, Pennsylvania. It is a 60-foot-long (18 m) Burr Truss bridge built in 1884. It crosses the North Branch of Mahantango Creek.[2]

In 1982 a new bridge was built to bypass the covered bridge, which is open only to pedestrian traffic. A round picnic table sits in the middle of the bridge.[3] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
