Humpback Bridge is a great eample of the old wooden covered bridges. It is well maintained and offers the opportunity to wade inthe cool waters of Dunlap Creek.

Very well cared for covered bridge. Nice surround park. The shallow creek is an excellent swimming spot as the number of locals proved.

This bridge is a relaxing break from highway traveling. It is a great place to spend a few relaxing minutes taking pictures.

This would be a much better experience if there hadn't been SO MUCH graffiti! Why do people feel compelled to mark on everything?

Due to recent floods, some repairs have been made with new lumber making the beauty less appealing. It is interesting to walk through the bridge and see the construction and smell the old lumber. The graffiti is less appealing.

Well worth a stop! Great beauty. Fast stream. Look for the love sculpture. Picnic and bathroom accommodations. Fabulous history. This is the latest incarnation of a bridge here. This is the only humpback design in the state.
