This is a beautiful little park with a nice walk to a covered bridge. It’s not spectacular but it was clean and well kept. A good place for a family outing. Parking seems limited.

Stopped at the covered bridge on my way to Hickory. It’s not something you can make a full day out of, but definitely worth the stop if you’ll be passing through. Good spot for a picnic as there are tables. Bring a camera. Head to...More

Well preserved structure & a fine example of the old bridges of that time that were built from rough hewn lumber. Wooden pegs were used to fasten the pieces together & can be seen throughout the structure.

Go for a stroll, learn about the bridge, wade in the creek, and be sure to take lots of pictures. This is one of my favorite places to go and relax, and it's free!

Neat historical site that is worth the visit. Has very good information on site, and pic-nic areas. No bathroom facilities on site.

This attraction is only a couple miles off of I-40. Directions are clearly marked by signs. Definitely worth checking out. There are no restrooms. There are picnic tables.

I'm glad I visited but it's one of those places that you would not go back to. The bridge itself was awesome, and the history I learned was great also.

No it is not a very long walk. I have taken my elderly mom there. She did fine even with a cane. The walk in the past is shorter than it once was. Great place for a picnic

It must be because the owners of the Bunker Hill Farm (in 1895) were asked to help build and maintain the bridge. If I built a bridge I would want my name on it too. :-)
