A nice excursion

Not far from Drumheller. Could be a stop on the way to the Hoodoos. Enjoy the stroll across the bridge. Admire the valley. Great ice cream back in Rosedale when you are done.

Nestled amongst a neat neighbourhood just off the main road outside Drumheller, this bridge is suspended just 20-30 feet off the river. The bridge itself has appeal, but on the other side is where the badlands or desert starts. It is a real switch from a local neighbourhood into the badlands in just a short walk across the bridge.

Not an overly high suspension bridge however, neat if you have never been on one. No cost to cross, just walk right over and back. Bridge is made of steel with views of the river below.

We were there on a cold, windy, raining, day. The bridge was swaying a lot and despite the person limit there were more than the limit on it. Didn't seem very safe but I crossed it on a dare. Was fun to see on the way to another destination.

Not much here to get excited about, unless you use your imagination. All it is: a steel suspension bridge over the Red Deer River. Skimpy. But if you think of how easy it is for us in 2016 to cross the bridge as compared to how difficult it was for First Nations and early valley settlers to do so, it... More

If you don't like heights or rushing bodies of water, I wouldn't suggest this for you! My family and I loved it. We went right after it rained though, so it was slippery and the mosquitos were out. It was a great adventure to the other side and back!

I'm not sure why they "sell" this as an attraction because there's not much to see. There is just one interpretive panel and private land that can't be trespassed on the other side of the bridge. But it's not every day that you can walk on a suspension bridge, so it was fun to spend a few minutes doing that... More

Another quick stop in this area. We took the walk across the bridge - beautiful river views - and yes, it does sway as people walk on it... So if you are skittish like me, it will feel a bit scary or exciting. But perfectly safe. Go on and try it! Fun. Also - there is a nice little local... More

This is 117 meter long walk across bridge. In the wind it sways back and forth but I safe. I found it very nice to walk across an old bridge used many over the years. There is a trail to follow around and you can visit the surrounding area across the mine. I never went on the walk but think... More

Fun thing to do for all ages! Go get a little fresh air and see who is brave enough to make it all the way across. Stop at the hoodoos on your way back to town. Would be a great picnic spot in the summer.
