This bridge is sort of located near Balboa Park in a residential neighborhood. You wouldn't expect to see it and Im not sure I would walk there again, but it took me to a different part of town.

We had to use a Google Maps to get us there but was totally worth it. This magnificent bridge is a true suspension bridge in that it is held up by cables across a canyon. It’s quite an architecture wonder to behold. While those who are afraid of heights might feel the jitters - it’s a 70 ft drop to the bottom and the bridge actually sways and bounces as you walk across it’s 375 ft span, it’s quite safe to do so as it is sturdy. Apparently the bridge is built to hold over 2000 people averaging 150 pounds each. As you walk along the bridge you can enjoy the view of the canyon below. At one end of the bridge there is a hiking trail to the bottom of the canyon. It’s a real hidden gem of an attraction in San Diego. It’s also free of charge to visit and cross the bridge.

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 you're afraid of heights, or feel uneasy if a bridge moves.

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 and is a short suspension bridge across a valley. You can really feel it sway as you walk across. It only takes a few minutes of your day to cross it but it's fun!

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 a fun little thing to check out in San Diego. I don’t know if you need to go out of your way but it was cool.
