This was our first visit to the area and while we were plotting our route on Google, we noticed a marker for the bridge. Why not stop? So very glad we did! Besides the beautiful fall colors, the bridge was incredibly picturesque. I wish they wouldn't have installed power lines so close to the bridge, but we found a few angles that hid them well enough.

For just a natural piece of history and a fine little park with the natural river there to be near (and when we have been there in the summer, we have played in the river with our grandkids) it is a wonderful place. And this time we even got to take senior photos of our granddaughter with the L O V E sign and the unique bridge. so it was perfect!

A group of us rode motorcycles out to visit this bridge. It is a magnificent structure and I highly recommend it. The bridge is in a now park-like setting. Get your bike, ride there, visit and talk to the bridge. You will enjoy it.

we drove over to see the bridge for the first time. Nice area and little river with access for the kids to play. Loved the "LOVE" Virginia sign made using the tree in the landscape!

Definitely one of America's very best covered bridges! Simply stunning and a favorite of locals. Unique Virginia LOVE sign for photo ops. Free to visit and very convenient to Callaghan exit of I64. Has picnic tables, parking. Wade in the creek in season. Water depth can vary, but some swimming is usually possible in summer, especially for kids. Easy stop on the way to/from The Greenbrier.

Wife and I stopped by to see this unique wooden covered bridge. Impressive, also the unique LOVE sign in the adjacent little park. Unfortunetely upkeep appears to be lacking as seen by the missing descriptive plackard and much grafitti, especially inside the bridge.

My sister and I during a quick trip around Virginia, made the off the beaten track journey to Humpback Bridge. I couldn't believe my eyes. I thought these were suppose to only exist in New England. The bridge is so lovely in a breathtaking setting. I'm serious when I say "Save the Humpback Bridge" as a definite stop on your trip to Virginia.

This gorgeous bridge is over a crystal clear river ..Best place for a picnic or skipping rocks..I was sorry to see the locals have written graffiti on the inside of the bridge..but it doesn't hurt the the beauty of the bridge.

I have always wanted to see a covered bridge and so made the detour from Lexington.
It was certainly worth the effort!
It was deserted when we arrived and so were able to take pictures with no cars or people in the background. The fall leaves and weak sunshine made it glow and it almost felt surreal.
Graffiti was present on the inside but certainly didn't detract from the beauty of it. I guess the scribbles have their own history going back over the years.
On a practical note, there are picnic tables, litter bins and toilets provided.
I wish we could have stayed longer. It was phenomenal.

I became enthralled by covered bridges on our trip up the Shenendoah valley ltwo summers ago. When I heard of this one we were already north of New Market, but I left the family tubing at the campground and drove throught the mountains to Covington & found the bridge. I stayed until dark-thirty taking pictures & inspecting every feature. There were kids swinging from a rope into the creek, folks picnicing...
It wasn't my frist bridge, and there have been a dozen since but it is the BEST!
