The LOVE art with the bridge in the background is the perfect photo op! and if wading in streams is your thing, its easy to do here! There are picnic tables, however the one drawback is that there are... More

This was a beautiful old bridge. Loved walking around the area and down to the river. There's a picnic area also. I took lots of pictures of the bridge and river!

This bridge is an example of money well spent. Our visit was so relaxing. You can walk through this historic bridge and play in the water below enjoying the beautiful little park shade if you like. It is a MUST.

Great place for a relaxing time with family and friends. Picnic tables and grills to a cook out. Good history lesson for the kids and adults as well. Look for the "LOVE" letters!

We visited this bridge on our way from Virginia to the New River Gorge area. It was very easy to find, clearly marked with signs along the road and interstate. When we arrived, we found the bridge and a great little area to explore around it. It was accessible for all ages. The creek was awesome for wading- nice and... More

This was a quick but worthwhile stop on our trip to the Allegheny Highlands. Don't miss the letters for LOVE made from objects and a tree. You have to look for that! A nice place for photographers.
