Rosedale Suspension Bridge, Drumheller

(4.1/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Has a great view, provided that there are clouds around to reflect the natural light. Sunset and sunrise times would be great for some nice pics. Its a small bridge and doesnt lead to anywhere much, but I havent really explored, so cant say for certain.
  • 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.
