I like to visit when I get the chance. I can't remember visiting in the winter though with snow being on the covered bridge but I do feel it would be worthwhile.

We decided to stop on our way home after seeing the sign on I-40. We did some research and it turns out this is one of 2 covered bridges still left in NC. It was a quick stop with some historical information and neat to see.

Nice place to visit. Take a picnic lunch (there are no grills), but the quiet, peaceful walk back to the bridge is worth the trip. Relaxing atmosphere. There is a small creek that my grandkids love to splash around in.

We've lived nearby for 15 years and only just found this spot. We were out for a Sunday drive with new cameras, looking for a place to work with them. By chance, the covered bridge appeared before us and we turned in. Being from the Northeast, I'm very familiar with old covered bridges but I was unaware there were any... More

We rode to the bridge only to find out the property is closed until April for repairs. Would have been better if that was on the signs.

This was fun stop on the way to Asheville from Raleigh. The bridge was restored in the 90s and is in great shape. It will take you about 30 minutes if you are traveling on I 40 to visit and be back on the road.

We have only lived in this area for 25 years, and I FINALLY managed to stop by. Yes, being sarcastic. If you are into history this is a must stop. Amazing that back then they built a bridge with no nails or bolts. Just wooden pegs. Amazing.

This bridge is one of only 2 historically recognized covered bridges in North Carolina. Located just a few minutes off of I-40, the bridge is easy to locate and is a great way to stop and stretch. The parking area is a short walk from the bridge. There are two paths to reach the bridge; one starts off with some... More

We went a little bit out of our way on our road trip to see the bridge after we read about it on Atlas Obscura. It was very pretty and fascinating to read about its history and the fact that it is one of only two remaining covered bridges in the country! Worth the visit.

The bunker hill covered bridge is dirty and going downhill very fast, people crave their names and then other ulgy sayings in the bridge. the creek under the bridge is dirty and filled with trash. People do not seem to appreciate and keep clean these wonderful things from the past.
