I would recommend this stop to anyone traveling past Exit 10. It's less than a mile from the exit and it is a very beautiful spot. The trees, bridge and water all make for a wonderful picture. There is also a Love "sign". There are picnic areas on both sides of the bridge. You can bring a lunch or you... More

They were working on the area so you could not walk on the bridge but we still got some great pictures. I read it is the only one in the country that is a humpback bridge. Worth the visit. Also, don't miss the LOVE. The "E" was tipped over when we were there. I'm sure the work crew has that... More

We were very disappointed by the bridge. It's completely blocked off so you can't even get close to it. Don't go out of your way at all to make the stop.

This covered bridge was once the main thoroughfare through this part of Virginia. It is a great place to stop to see, walk across, and take pictures. There are also picnic tables if you would like to stay a while. Also a great place for children to wade in the water. Right now is is not in good shape because... More

This bridge is fun, unique, and historic. I had not seen it in forty years and was afraid it had been damaged by the recent floods. Thankfully, it sustained little damage and was worth the trip to see.

I was on a solo motorcycle adventure and this came up on my trip advisor app and lucky me it was only 4 miles from my route. The bridge was under construction and there was orange barrier to keep people off the bridge. The bridge is beautiful piece of history. The stream below bridge, was teal blue water. It was... More

Dunlap Creek runs under the bridge. The bridge was originally part of the "highway" system. It is the last humpbacked, covered bridge. A beautiful place to visit, eat lunch, and take a break
