The suspension bridge is about 100 yards long, spanning just above the Red Deer River. The metal mesh frame allows views to the flowing water below and a cool breeze on a hot summer day. Smaller children may be a bit nervous as the bridge can sway a bit with numerous people crossing, but it is pretty tame. It is... More

This bridge is HUGE! It is nice to walk across it and contemplate how amazing humans are to have created such a structure. I think kids would enjoy it.

Were not too anxious to go on the bridge at first but once on it, a great experience. A must see when you are in Drumheller.

I have a fear of heights and even though this bridge is not very high I was anxious crossing it. Another neat attraction in the area. If you are looking to add another stop on your adventures here, make sure to stop by.

Apparently I'm being a baby by not wanting to cross a rickety old bridge to an abandoned area full of snakes. I've been to this area twice now and last time I just stayed in the car. Barely ten minutes outside of town but still not worth the drive.

It's fun to get out of your car, walk across the Rosedale bridge, and walk back. It's a bit nerve wracking to look through the bride grating to see the river below, and to feel the bridge swaying in the wind or along with people's motion.

If you are in Drumheller chances are you are a tourist looking at the canyons and hoodoos. The suspension bridge is a free attraction across a wide river to some colourful hilly outcrops which are an easy climb for great valley views.

Okay, I've been on longer, scarier, higher suspension bridges, and one's with much better views, but this one was very nice and free. It is pretty solid with not a lot of swaying, although you do look right down to the river below. Really all you do is cross the bridge and look around. There are no guides or infrastructure...

Rosedale was a detour for us after leaving Drumheller. This suspension bridge is longer than the one we saw in Wolesley, Saskatchewan, and to me was not as pretty. You can do some exploring when you get off the bridge if you wish, though we did not. We were told to take route 56 heading to Lethbridge, although route 9... More
