“scenic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Humpback bridge is just that. It is a bridge, it is very unique and a pretty place to walk around and stretch your legs. you can go swimming under/around the bridge during the summer months but there is nothing else there to see or do. My young grandsons love to go there to swim and turn the rocks over to catch crawdads.

“A very unique bridge - not much to do there but look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

A local landmark, it and is a unique bridge that no longer goes anywhere but across a creek in a park. Would suggest a picnick and a quite time in the woods as there is nothing else except the bridge to see. It is worth the stop.

“Great park, strange people”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

My family who is local to Covington took us to the park here to see the Humpback Bridge. Unfortunately, construction work was going on so it didn't look like it does on the Trip Advisor picture, but I'm glad they were working on it and making repairs, it's a neat part of history.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is a beautiful little park. Unfortunately for us it was evening and rainy but that didn't detract from the beauty of the bridge. Check out the attached photo of the sign telling you about the LOVE of the bridge and how it was built. The second photo shows the LOVE. The only thing that could have been better was if there was less foliage covering the bridge. Well worth the time to stop.
