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.

Even though it was a bit drizzly, it was worth stopping here. I had not previously been aware that there was such a thing, and the "LOVE" graphic you can pose with there is kinda cute.

We were lost and saw a sign for the humpback bridge 1/2 mile. Decided to check it out. Beautiful old covered bridge with a gentle stream and park for a picnic. So glad we took the time to see this spot.

My favorite part in this park is the word LOVE spelled out. Please see my pictures but it is very pretty with water running and the bridge is in good shape. Rope Swing under brige. Walk along the water, skip some rocks or have a picnic.Nice kept covered bridge with 5 to 6 picnic tables and a few grills.

My grandfather's place was just a little ways up the road from the Humpback. It is authentic. Of course it has had to have work but to me it is a "bit of home."

Beautiful setting for this lovely bridge, original or not it still is a beautiful bridge and nice, tranquil place to have a picnic, easy to find. Didn't like the graffiti inside but thank goodness for photoshop. I don't think you will be disappointed if you stop by and see this one. Photographers will love this photo op. Love the L... More

Even though it has undergone some restoration work in 2013 it's still not to be missed. It it may not be 100% original but it was originally built in 1857 and considering we could have lost it and not seen it at all, I won't complain. Only thing that was a disappointment was all the graffiti on the inside and... More

My husband and I visited this beautiful place on our trip from West Virginia to the Blue Ridge Parkway through the Midland Trail (US-60). It's a beautiful and peaceful place , perfect for a picnic with the family (kids and adults) and beautiful photos. The day we visited several kids are swimming even though the day was so cold. Unfortunately... More
