Humpback bridge is one of the last good examples of a wooden arched bridge. The bridge sits beside US 60 on the roadbed of its predecessor. Both have been replaced by interstate 64. There is a nice park swimming hole underneath. The last time we were there I hope the people loitering in their cars were not up to what... More

I enjoyed visiting this park. It is easy to get to from the interstate. It has always been one of my favorite places to visit.

We have driven by the "Humpback Bridge" sign so many times, but we never thought to detour--and we should have! The county maintains a lovely roadside picnic area there, with clean portable restrooms and ample parking. The bridge is so interesting--bring some chalk so you and your honey can leave your names behind. And there's an added bonus, if you... More

Cool historic stop, as this is the oldest covered bridge in VA. Parking and picnic area. I didn't realize there were humpbacked covered bridges, so I'm glad we stopped!

We had driven down to Covington to go to the Walmart and we were looking for things to do. This was worth stopping by and checking out.

We visited the Humpback Covered Bridge while vacationing in the area. It is Virginia's oldest covered bridge. It is located in a park like setting off of US Route 60 near Covington, VA and is well maintained. You can picnic here and picnic tables and charcoal grills are on the premises. If you are interested in covered bridges this is... More

Just a little off the main path, the Humpback Bridge is worth a stop. It's a scenic place to stretch your legs, see the fall foliage and even have a picnic. Great spot for photographs.

It is so pretty here. There is an area to have a pick nick. Take some chairs or blankets and just hang out for a while. You can play and swim in the creek and go for simple walks. It has a Love sign that is unique and pretty. The tree make the V of the sign. Very photogenic area.... More

We stopped there as part of a driving tour we planned. The park area is lovely and has grills and picnic tables if you want to stop to eat. The bridge is interesting since it goes UP in the middle (hence the name humpback). You can walk across the bridge which we did. Other people were wading in the river... More
