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.

  • In the way of Hoodoos, is the bridge, but no great attraction. Stop for some photos on the outskirts and the nearby town of Rosedale.

  • Maybe not as interesting as everything else in Drumheller, but this is a great spot. the history of the mine is cool, the bridge is fun and the trees are great for a picnic. A great place to relax bet...  read more »
  • You have to go.scary but fun..if it rains or has just not go climbing up hills on the other side. Very slippery when wet 
  • Different than other suspension bridges that I've visited. Very cool. Metal instead of wood... worth a look if you are into that kind of thing. The view of the river cutting through the badlands is pretty cool.
  • Great little bridge leading to some nice tributaries to hike in. The collapse of the old coal mine made some areas very easy for families with young children to hike the badlands. I went near the end of June and the cacti were in bloom which was a special treat!
  • So much fun to cross. Make sure you dress warm if it's colder out as the wind is strong.
  • A nice slice of history tucked away off the main road. A neat, old bridge with some fun areas to explore.
  • Cool bridge with a nice trail at the other side. The sign says the other side is private property and old mine workings can be dangerous.
