This bridge gives you a good view of red deer river and perfect if u want to have rest after a long drive since the surronding has good parking lots and for free.

How cool that this historic bridge is free! What a fantastic visit we had here. Lots of walks to be done, but research them before you go!

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.

This historic bridge was built in 1931 for the miners working in the Star coal mine. Now it offers great views of the Red Deer river.

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.

This is an interesting bridge which was originally built to accommodate the miners going to the mines. It is quite a long bridge over a small river which holds a maximum of 21 people. We found the bridge particularly swaying when large people with heavy...More

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.
