Bridge Landmark
Don't miss one of Golden's emblematic landmarks at Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge--at 46 m (151 ft), the longest covered timber bridge in all of Canada. Built in 2001 by community volunteers for a town-wide event, the bridge lies within easy walking distance from downtown Golden. Aside from its practical function, the Douglas-fir structure symbolizes cooperation by locals in the community. Combine your visit to the bridge with a bit of browsing in the town's quaint shops.

  • A work of art. Try to make the time and visit here.
  • This wooden bridge itself is a work of art, and has a beautiful little area with flowers and archways. It's most gorgeous at night though I feel, with the bridge gently light up. The view over the river is very pretty, especially at sunset/sunrise.
  • Great views from a really cool structure. The bridge is a great piece to have in Golden. It's also a great place to shoot photos!
  • Great covered foot bridge
  • I thought it would be more spectacular. You can have a nice walk next to the river.
