Nice walk to the old bridge with some good view both ways up and down the river. Bridge has graffiti on it. The path/tracks need better sign posting.

Nice little pull off the highway and a straightforward stroll through a wood and down a track to the river. Brilliant to see the old bridge and going across the bridge gives you great views of the river and the new road bridge.

Just a 10 minute walk from the highway. Lovely old bridge across the Fraser river. Worth a visit. You can also see the replacement bridge at the same time

Located a short drive south of Hells Gate is this short and slightly descending walk to Alexander Bridge. It was a little worn down and graffiti covered, but still looked very graceful with chunky entry portals at each end. The view it gave was a...More

FREE! Take the 5-10 minute stroll from the parking lot down to the vintage bridge over the river. The single lane bridge is no longer used for vehicle traffic but is open for foot traffic. The open steel mesh deck increases the experience. It's well...More

Route we took had narrow sections on rough path through woods. I think there might have been a longer route via a more surfaces path but I couldn’t be sure. Sorry
