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.

  • Lovely views of river. Nice structure. And leads to very nice river walk. Worth a stroll
  • I'd give this bridge 10 stars if i could! Photos here always come out amazing. This is a must stop for travelers to come stretch there legs by going for a quick\long walk along the path and over the bridge. Don't forget that Golden is also home to many crystals so watch the path cuz you might get lucky!
  • Nice place,, we accidentally crashed there while our way back to Calgary, but spent like 2hours,, it was worth the time,
  • Beautiful bridge right in the centre of town. Lots of walking/biking paths. And you can rent a bike right in the square.
  • Beautiful photo opportunity and connects you right to spirit square.

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.
