Our grandchildren enjoy this attraction and when we have the opportunity when they visit us, we take them there. We were not able to do this in this past summer but have done it last year, 2017.

This is a free attraction but certainly not for the faint hearted. It crosses the river to the old Star Mine site where there are lots of walks to follow. The bridge itself is quite bouncy and only 20 people are allowed on at once...More

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.

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.

Drumheller recommendations (3 Replies)
Hello, I have family coming over, and I would love to take them to Drumheller for a day trip. I have an uncle that is elderly, so I don't think long hikes would be suitable for us. I'm thinking of visiting the museum, and the hoodoos. Are there any other places that I can fit in without it being too rushed for a day trip? I see that there is the Little Church, Horsethief Canyon, Horseshoe Canyon, Hrkney Hill Lookout, and the Rosedale Suspension Bridge. Also, any recommendations for...More

Whenever someone does the drive to Drumheller, I always suggest a stop at Dry Island Buffalo Jump off highway 21 near Three Hills. And highway 21 is a nice alternative to highway 2.
Early June 2018 Itinerary (7 Replies)
We are planning a trip to southwest Alberta in early June 2018. We arrive in Calgary on June 1 and I've roughed out an itinerary for the places we've decided to visit. I wouldn't mind having the TA experts look at my plan to see if I've missed anything. Both my husband and I have previously visited the Banff and Jasper area so we've decided to leave this part of the West out of our trip. Originally our trip was going to focus on major hiking treks in Waterton (Crypt Lake, etc) but...More

I would probably be inclined to do Waterton at the end of your trip rather than first. By all accounts, they're having an equally harsh winter, and that may affect when they can get started with repairs/renovations/rebuilding from last summer's fires. Early June is very early in the season there, so they may be aiming to have things ready to go for the July long weekend. At present, areas in the park are still closed -- areas will be re-opened as facilities & roads are rebuilt/repaired and...More
