Free with lots of parking and washrooms, nothing else touristy. Crossing the bridge is fun, not too scary, only 20 ft or so above river. Our team of teenage boys then climbed to the top of the mountain on other side and had fun and great views. Wear runners with good tractiin if attempting the climb and downhill. Good photo... More

It's no Capilano bridge but the touristy stop is still plenty good for a photo-op. The bridge is very sturdy and does not sway too much, even on a windy day. The transparent steel mesh could pose problems for the vertigo challenged. The maximum number of walkers is 20, but no one really keeps the count. The land across the... More

The suspension bridge is fun to visit, and on the other side of the bridge you can take a short hike up the close hill to visit an old wooden mining structure. I'm sure if you had time you can wonder around more, but that is all we had time for that day. Fun trip!

great bouncy bridge, and look under the wires on hot days rattlers coiled up over the water...or careful on the hill north of the bridge, quite a large family of snakes there 13 was the best count on one trip

The Rosedale Suspension Bridge is a great side trip if you are headed out to the Hoodoos etc. The bridge is well maintained and breathtaking (sometimes a little scare depending on your comfort with heights etc). The land on the north of the bridge is private land, but most people take a short hike to take photos with the old... More

The bridge is not that impressive, but you can view it as a free side dish that can come with the main meals of Drumheller. You can use the tables near it for picnic purposes of for a short rest.

This is a true suspension bridge and may make some nervous. It crosses the river and leads to an abandoned mine. The area is filed with steep hills and some sink holes so, while it is fun to explore, young children should be watched closely.

I unique stop that you can spend about an hour enjoying. There is ample parking for easy access and picnic tables if you are looking for a spot to snack at. The bridge itself is easy to cross but keep in mind that it can sway a bit and might be scary for some. On the other side I was... More
