I love bridges and love to photograph them. This bridge is a nice addition to my album. Super close to my hotel in Covington and nice scenery on the drive over. The site was super clean and well maintained and there are even port o pots for anyone that needs them. I look forward to going back one day.

Covered bridge that has survived the times. A good place to visit for an hour. More time if you plan to picnic. There are grills and picnic tables available. Also take a picture of the L O V E monuments in front of the bridge. The v shaped tree makes the V in the word. Remember 'Virginia is for Lovers.'... More

20 years ago I did a photography project on Humpback Bridge. It hasn't changed much. A little more graffiti on the inside. And the big LOVE letters 100 feet away are cool. With a 6 year old she was more interested in playing in the creek. As an amature phorographer. I find it hard to get perfect shot because there... More

I do not remember covered bridges but they uses to be very common in early years in 1900's. Here is not only restored covered bridge but also humpback bridge which were thought to be stronger and could hold more weight. A walk across this bridge gives you the feeling of living in the far past. A step into the past.

This bridge is gorgeous. You really don't want to pass up stopping here. There's tables so you can stop and have lunch if you're passing through. Road is marked well with signs starting on I64. You can walk across the bridge and walk along the banks. It's a beautiful location. I'd like to go back when there's snow.

This covered bridge is located over a beautiful running stream with very clear water and lots of smooth river rocks. It's an excellent place to get some good vacation shots. You will only need a short time, but it's worth the stop. Nice place for a picnic, too.

Nice little stop walking through the bridge and the water underneath. Tons of tagging inside the bridge. Was interesting to stop and read some of it both old and newer

If you're in the area its worth the trip to the park to see this Humpback Bridge. It's one of only two covered humpback bridges left in the United States. It's blocked off so you can't drive over it but you can walk it.
