“A good stop..”

Meems Bottom Covered Bridge
Attraction details
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is an easy stop and interesting. ...very picturesque. ...historical and unique. This being my old stomping grounds ...until recently I had only been to the bridge but never actually crossed. This time I came from the opposite direction and crossed toward Rt. 11. ... It is beautiful at any time of year.

In a recent drop, my GPS took me off the highway (a shortcut?) and onto N Valley Pike Road. What a pleasant surprise / road / drive.

Plenty of cool old cars in front / backyards. A few small quaint little towns (small town America rules), and the Meems Bottom Covered Bridge.

Off the main road by 1/3 of a mile or so, but well worth the short drive. Very quiet and pleasant surrounding. A nice bridge to take pictures of, and just a nice way to break up a long drive for 30 minutes or so.

On a cold but sunny and beautiful fall day, we decided to explore the nearest covered bridge from Washington DC metro. The map said it was just less than 2 hours from Northern VA so we went. It was a great decision. The bridge although restored was first built in the 1800s and is the longest covered bridge in VA. It was really a beautiful experience. When you get to the bridge, there is space for parking for 5 or so cars. We went down and explored the river/stream which was also really beautiful. I imagine it is going to be a good spot for a summer picnic when its warmer. I saw a picnic table by the roadside too. We went up to the bridge and ran across to the other side and back. We just made sure we were making a lot of noise so the cars see us. I noticed that the drivers are very mindful of the "one-way" capacity of the bridge and seem to be very safety-oriented. After we enjoyed the covered bridge experience, we went to the Route 11 Potato Chips Factory which is very close to the bridge. They made great potato chips and on 'cooking' days you can see the factory at work! Great experience for the kids. We also went to the nearby Cave Ridge Winery (on 1476 Conicville Road; Mt Jackson VA 22842) voted as the best winery in the Shenandoah Valley in 2012. It was a great day trip on a beautiful fall day.

Great area for a cruise in our convertible, the cool evening air blowing in our hair felt amazing. The late October Autumn scenery was beautiful. The covered bridge made a wonderful back drop for some family photos.

It's worth a side trip to see this covered bridge. It's a beautiful bridge in a beautiful location. Look for the signs when you are heading out Route 11, and you are also close to the Route 11 chip factory, win-win.
