Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge, Golden

4.6
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.

Where to stay in Golden

For convenience and proximity to local shops, stay at one of the lodges or bed and breakfasts located within the grid-like streets of the town center. If you want a bit more space to enjoy the natural settings, look out of town to nearby Edelweiss, where you'll find a range of inns and lodges just off the Trans-Canada Highway. If skiing is your main game, look west along Kicking Horse Trail, where you can stay at the base of the nearby ski gondolas.
