Bridge Tourist Spot
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. By using our Drumheller vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Rosedale Suspension Bridge and other attractions in Drumheller.

  • 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!
  • A fun experience! The other side of the bridge was a great hike.
  • Nice bridge hold onto everything since the floor is not solid
