Rosedale Suspension Bridge, Drumheller

4.2
Walk across Rosedale Suspension Bridge, a historical bridge in the Drumheller Valley rebuilt to commemorate the colorful mining history of the town. The suspension bridge stretches across the Red Deer River 117 m (384 ft), and was built for the coal miners to access work easier. The bridge is mostly comprised of a metal mesh, so as you cross the river you can see the running water below. Be prepared, the bridge does sway a bit, especially if there are multiple people crossing at once. A visit to Rosedale Suspension Bridge represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Drumheller online trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

    This is just one of the lovely pieces of our Canadian history that has been preserved for our enjoyment. It is such a well built suspension bridge, and it has been looked after, so that everyone may c...  more »

    Took the 3 kids on the bridge and they enjoyed it, you can get some nice pictures off it. Bring a lock not sure why but there are lots on the bridge.  more »

    If you're doing the recommended drive loop while in Drumheller, it's a nice stop to get out and stretch your legs. A walk across the bouncy bridge and back is short, but enjoyable  more »

    Very beautiful bridge and surrounding area. Just a little bit out of town on the way to the hoodoos. Great pictures of the bridge and sunrise can be taken from the river and also from above on the hills surrounding the area. Make sure to head to the top of the closest hill to get a look at the old wooden structures of past bridges!!

    First time there and had an awesome time! We did the bridge, hiked up the hoodoos and had some quality time with the family! Be sure to be careful of the snakes!! We did see a snake catch a duck and that sure was mother nature at its wildest!

    Our family has been to Drumheller many times over the years and never stopped to take a walk across the Star Mine Suspension Bridge. We finally made the trip out just for the bridge and we are so glad we did. Skip the dino's one time, or even come out early and take the trip across the bridge and back before the museum. Experience the views like nowhere else in Alberta. Hike up the hills on the other side and get yet another viewpoint. Learn a little about Alberta's rich history by taking the same trip the Star Miners did everyday. You won't regret it!

Where to stay in Drumheller

If you want to embrace the town's Jurassic obsession, stay in a fun--if somewhat tacky--dinosaur-themed hotel. Most of the town's accommodations sit along the main roads of South Dinosaur Trail and Railway Avenue East, with a few budget-friendly motels, bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, and cabins to the north of the river.
