A day trip to see the fall colors turned into a trip into history. The Humpback Bridge is the oldest covered bridge in Va and spans Dunlap Creek. A nice little wayside with picnic tables makes it a great destination to enjoy the colors, cool days and a gentle laughing creek winding through the trees. The challenge is getting there.... More

This was less than 5 minutes off the highway and about 20 minutes from the Falling Springs Waterfall. Don't miss the L-O-V-E, the 'V' being the tree. Picnic area and portable potty. Great stop for a fall drive!

Just a short drive from the Homestead resort and worth the drive. You can go to just check out the bridge or take a light snack or picnic lunch. Quiet and peaceful. Not sure I would stay long, but if I had younger children, I might kick/throw a ball around there and enjoy the small park. No restrooms though that... More

On our way home from Covington, VA we took the exit to Humpback Bridge. It was very east to find, only 1-2 miles off exit. We stopped on a Sunday morning around 7:15am. The sun was stilling coming up and there was fog in the mountains. The bridge was spectacular - very sturdy and a great place for family pictures.... More

This little park was easy to find right off I-64 and the perfect stop for a picnic! The bridge is beautiful! 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.
