This was very interesting to stop and see. It is very unusual in the way it was built. There is a nice little wayside park at the bridge if a rest or picnic was wanted. The only drawback would be that there is not an address to be able to find it easier.

The bridge is only about a mile off of I-64. The site is well marked. A great place to take a picnic lunch. The bridge is only used as a pedestrian crossing.

A friend and I was able to take two exchange students to see this historical site with the main goal for me, which was to see the LOVE sign. We had a great time, a picnic and the teens were able to skip rocks in the water. We took some amazing pictures, it is a day that we all will... More

In Virginia, I am not aware that many of these gems are left! It's just beautiful. The day we were there, families enjoyed the water below. There are areas available to grill and picnic. It's a neat little spot to enjoy an American treasure.

Quick stop about 1 mile off of I-64. Well worth the stop if you like old covered bridges. Nice parking area. There's a shallow creek good for wading. They even made a cool photo op out of a "V" shaped tree, adding an L, O & E. If you stand in the right spot, you can take a picture of... More

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.
