A bit scarey crossing but totally worth the scare factor and sight. Also worth the hills to climb and get pictures from

This historic suspension footbridge over the Red Deer River goes back to Rosedale's coal mining days. We had no idea that it was there until we saw the sign and decided to check. The near end (where there's ample parking) is located in a lovely little public park - great for a lunch stop. The far end leads to the... More

Signs warn you not to sway the bridge, but it sways quite well without any assistance. It is quite exciting when five or six people are crossing at the same time. It is really a bridge to nowhere, because signs also warn you that the former coal workings on the far side are dangerous. However, that should not stop you... More

A very quick stop on your way to some other attraction. The bridge is starting to look a bit rickety with lots of bent metal. The land on the other side is privately owned so basically you cross and then come back, don't expect to spend much time here. The history of the area is interesting and if you have... More

Was on a quick weekend getaway with my daughter. This stop offered a chance to stretch our legs and also learn some local history. The bridge is fun and bouncy. People have decided to use it for love locks. So if you're into that bring a lock.

The suspension bridge is easy to find and doesn't take too long to visit. It does rock back and forth and vibrate somewhat when you walk across it, but it isn't frightening. It is wide enough for people to easily pass each other. On the far side of the bridge there is a short foot path you can follow before... More

I took one step on and walked off, it was so scary! But the hubby and son loved it and made it all the way across. Very interesting to see, even when it was swaying back and forth a bit!

I love this place as whenever you have few people walking on it, the bridge starts swinging softly so it was great way to conquer some fear both me & my wife. It is an activity that last 10 to 15 min but not to be missed cz it is free, cool, overlooking a beautiful river

Neat attraction, bridge gets a good sway when windy. Kids thought it was fun, and it's free. Recommend checking this out.

You can cross the bridge and see an old sign for the old mines place and you come back. That's it. Not a must to do.
