Rosedale Suspension Bridge, Drumheller

4.1
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.

  • Cool bridge but after being through the hoodoos in Drumheller there is not much to see here
  • Good place to visit, just make sure you venture further up one you cross the bridge.
  • A very cool, historic suspension bridge. You can tell it's a suspension bridge when you walk on it!
  • If you have never been it's worth a quick stop on the way out of Drumheller to the hoodoos or Atlas coal mine. Lots of parking and we'll maintained site.
  • Cool place to stop and walk across.

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.
