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.
I volunteer at a local facility and over time, I have driven by numerous signs pointing to the Bunker Hill Covered Bridge. Always curious but never felt I had the time till yesterday when I was running early. Decided to take the turn off of US 70 and satisfy my curiosity. Should have done this a long time ago. Not... 更多
I like to visit when I get the chance. I can't remember visiting in the winter though with snow being on the covered bridge but I do feel it would be worthwhile.
We decided to stop on our way home after seeing the sign on I-40. We did some research and it turns out this is one of 2 covered bridges still left in NC. It was a quick stop with some historical information and neat to see.

This was fun stop on the way to Asheville from Raleigh. The bridge was restored in the 90s and is in great shape. It will take you about 30 minutes if you are traveling on I 40 to visit and be back on the road.

This bridge is one of only 2 historically recognized covered bridges in North Carolina. Located just a few minutes off of I-40, the bridge is easy to locate and is a great way to stop and stretch. The parking area is a short walk from the bridge. There are two paths to reach the bridge; one starts off with some... 更多
