Only a few minutes off the road, lots of parking. Fun to explore on the other side of the bridge. Doesn't sway and not very high up.

A beautiful massive suspension bridge. Windy today but we still walked across the the other side where you can wander around anywhere. Unique bridge that is a must see in the Valley.

It's always interested to see something from so many years ago. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.

A mesh and wire suspension bridge which is certainly not original. Work a look if passing. It does sway when crossing but is not too high.

An interesting site with a good deal of history, the walk up the hill on the opposite side gives a great view of the river valley.

A short few minutes from the highway where you can take a walk across the Rosedale Suspension Bridge that once crossed over to the Star Mine Site. Very windy the day we went but that just added to the fun of the adventure.

No one else there when we stopped and a free attraction. Very enjoyable visit, not far off the road on way to HooDoos and Wayne.

A fun little stop. Easy to find off the highway just follow the signs. Bit of history and love all the locks on the bridge. A little trail on other side to go up top of hill.

No you cannot bike across the bridge. I'm sure you can bike to the bridge depending on where you are biking from!!!

I imagine it would still be safe to go on the bridge but I would not venture past it on the other side. The metal will likely be slippery so I would advise caution.
