The Humpback Bridge lays claim to being the oldest of Virginia's remaining covered bridges. Located in Alleghany County, just west of Covington, it was built in 1857 with a beautiful stream flowing below and plenty of parking. While you're there, grab some food for a picnic in nearby Clifton Forge or Covington.
DIRECTIONS: The bridge can be reached from Interstate 64 by taking exit 10 to Route 60 and traveling one-half mile east, or by taking Route 60 west from Covington.
