This is another neat stop tomade in the area (when you are going out to see the Hoodoos) where you can stop and walk the bridge across the river! The kids will enjoy it!

The bridge was cool but was a one time thing for me. There was a weight restriction of 20 people and there were way more then 20 people at the time we were crossing so that made me very nervous.

It is a bit over 3oo metres long and does sway a bit in the wind. The far side is on private property (and old mine site) so you turn around an come back.The parking area is very adequate

Fun travel across the bridge and nice views especially if you care to climb the hill on the other side of the bridge. Lots of hiking trails to see.

Our family of 6 (kids are 5,5,8 and 11) liked the history (used to be used to take the coal across the river and the experience. Once you get to the other side, the kids had a great time exploring and we even saw a little garter snake. Perfect for city kids.
