We took a quick trip to the wayside and found a relaxing picnic area. Kids were swimming in the water and there was plenty of area to walk the dogs and relax. Not many covered bridges left!

Wish we had more time to explore it! Bring your camera as it is a good photo op. Several small children and families were splashing in the shallow water under the bridge. There are port a potties on site.

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.
