Living right near it, as a child we used to swim underneath the bridge. Not sure if that is still open, but I do know that the bridge is open and that lately the area has been working on improving this site for more than just a stop and see. It is rather short (just from one side of the river to the other), but the history inside of the bridge tells a tale that can keep you busy for a while (graffiti!). Def a great place for anyone to visit, whether for a short stop or an afternoon picnic.

After driving from the Lost World Caverns we saw the sign for Humpback bridge and immediately detoured! The bride is pretty cool and a neat bit of Virginia history. As of Aug. 12th, they were working on erosion issues on the bridge so they had it roped off. They also recently put in the new LOVE sign where we took a great family photo! I highly recommend this brief stop, you can also swim in the river and enjoy a picnic on it's banks.

Lovely place for a picnic! It has one of the L-O-V-E structures found around the Commonwealth reminding people that "Virginia is for Lovers".

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.
