A nice place to walk

We go several summer Sunday's mornings each year. Good parking close to the highway. The bridge is a short walk on a shaded path. Something cool to do and see some history.

I travel quite a bit for work. On the way to or from a customer site, I look up covered bridges in different states. Being an amateur photographer, I love to shoot old covered bridges. Bunker Hill Covered Bridge is a must see and great photo opportunity. A little walk back to the bridge so bring walking shoes. Good history... More

If you are driving down the road and see the sign for the bridge, you should stop. It's a great place to stretch your legs. After parking your car it's a short walk to the bridge. Unfortunately people have felt the need to deface the bridge by writing on it.

We visited in February and it was a bit of a challenge to get there though the snow, but worth it! It was a short walk down a scenic path. There are signs at the bridge with history and information. Very cool place to visit and some excellent picture opportunities here!

I saw a sign on the highway and decided to follow it and see. It seemed a little out of the way but I am so glad that I stopped. It is a bit of a hike over a stream and through the woods. It was very cool. You can walk across the bridge and get a view from both... More

The gate was closed, but visitors are welcome to park at the gates and walk down the hill to the path. Very nice walk, crosses the creek twice before reaching the bridge. Informational signs at the bridge. Good place to take pictures.

This is a few miles off the highway. Passed it a thousand times, finally stopped. It is what it promises: a short walk to a covered bridge. That's it. There are some picnic benches thanks to Eagle Scout projects. Be aware that when I visited, it had been raining DAILY inches upon inches for 3 straight weeks. Since it had... More

We like this kind of stuff, so we enjoyed it. Short walk and short visit but worth stoping to see. There's only 2 covered bridges left in NC this is the first I've seen. I'll keep my eyes out for the 2nd.

First of all as I stated. Part of history, part of mine. Bunker hill covered bridge is one of the last remaining covered bridges in North Carolina and is open for public viewing. For years and years its been a field trip destination for local schools and I personally can remember my first trip here. Not much has changed since... More

One of the area's most prestigious historical offerings. A pleasant glade and view of the architecture. Receives bad treatment from some tourists.
