This bridge is located near Balboa Park, in a residential neighborhood. It's a unique sight and pretty cool to cross. While we were there, a jogger came along and created lots of sway, which was unnerving, but the bridge is secure. Take your time if...More

I've never seen this as a popular place to visit - part of the intrigue of it - but it's very interesting. It was built in 1912 and the craftsmanship is amazing, in and of itself. It's located fairly high in the San Diego hills...More

Such a great fun site to see in San Diego!! This little suspension bridge within a San Diego neighborhood is just a cute quirky fun thing. The bridge goes over a canyon in the neighborhood. I loved coming here and seeing this. This was just...More

I like doing things off the beaten path, so this was on my list of potential places to hit while exploring San Diego. It was on our path from lunch to Balboa Park, so I routed us over it. I was glad we went, but...More

Saw the bridge as a hidden treasure on some website. I was surprised by what I found. Parked on a side street and within a few steps I was at the entrance. The bridge goes over a small canyon in the neighborhood. It is enjoyed...More

Cool bridge to see and walk across. Near Balboa Park. Bridge is over some nature trails and small gorge. Somewhat bouncy.

We come to San Diego yearly if not twice a year. We've done all the "touristy" site and wanted something new. And this Suspension Bridge little walk was it. Hidden in a residential neighborhood, we parked the car and went for a nice walk, found...More

I ran there early morning. Neighborhood looked nice, no signs of anything unpleasant and the area of the bridge and around was clean. Bridge is fun, great construction and it is a bit odd, when I ran over it, it bounced up and down! But...More

I made a point of visiting this bridge while on a walking trip through the Hillcrest neighbourhood as it's not too far from there. Crossing this bridge was a thrill. It wobbles and sways as others walk along it. The guard wires do not leave...More
