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

A very cool site that is hard to miss when checking out the beautiful Red Deer River. The bridge itself is quite long and easy to get to with handy parking and such, so there is no reason to not stop for a visit and take a gander. One of the 1st things you'll realize is that there really is... More

The bridge is well maintained and there are signs setting out the history of the old mine that once was there. The washrooms are handy and the parking lot can hold RVs so good facilities. On the other side of the river there are areas to explore that are also interesting. There is no fee and this site is definitely... More

Stop and read the historical plaques! Otherwise the bridge, while fun to walk across, is very much a ' bridge to nowhere'. The site does a good job of representing the history of coal mining in the Red Deer River valley, presenting a quite different face from the dinosaur themes prevalent in the Drumheller area.,

This was a fun little diversion! Worth the time to get out, cross the bridge and enjoy the other side. Easy walk and lots to see, perfect for little kids too.

Nice place if you are heading for somewhere else but definitely is not worth more than an hour visit. the bridge is awesome, is a really great place to take pictures or record video, when you are crossing the bridge you can notice that the winds moves it, so it is kind of scary. the visit is worth it but...

It was a beautiful day in the Fall when we arrived here. The bridge was quite an adventure and a great photo spot. It was a little scary crossing, but you had to just keep looking forward. Reaching the other side, we climbed the awesome hills to the top. More great pictures! A must do!

A lovely bridge with an interesting history for the miners who once crossed it. For the more adventurous there is a climb on the other side to the top of the ridge. Mind your footing as it's quite steep in places. Great little stop!

For a town of only 8000 people Drumheller certainly has more than its fair share of tourist attractions including the Rosedale Suspension Bridge. The bridge’s proper name is the Alberta Star Mine Bridge but Trip Advisor reviewers have named it after the town it is in. Unlike other suspension bridges that we have visited it is not very high but... More

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!
