I love visiting and taking pictures of primitive places and this one was definitely worth the time. It is a beautiful location and easy to locate.

Nice stop if youre in town, one of the oldest covered bridges in the country. Picnic tables and a nice creek make for a good lunch stop and photo safari!

Humpback bridge is a great little place to check out! It's only about a mile off the interstate and has plenty of room to walk around, have a picnic, or just have fun taking pictures. The bridge is a beautiful part of history. A very enjoyable stop for a family on a road trip.

If visiting Covington, VA, this is a must see! Very historic and a beautiful sight. The river that flows beneath is beautiful in itself, but with the bridge and surrounding area, it is a must see! Fun to bring a cooler and have a picnic lunch. Picnic tables are available and there were port a potty's there, and they were... More

Great side trip while staying at The Homestead Resort. Picnic area along side the beautiful river. Check out the Love sign in front of the bridge!

I have visited here many of times from being a young child swimming in the creek below to as an adult just for the views. There is now one of the LOVE signs here that VA does, which is nice for pictures. The bridge does have initials written all about inside of it but it's always been like that, for... More

It is a quaint little road side park. It would be great for a pick nick or just a quiet walk. Not much to do but the scenery is great. It is amazing how the bridge is built.

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.
