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.

  • Pretty damn amazing piece of design, engineering and craftsmanship. It absolutely looks and feels just right. The town has to be deservingly proud to have put it up especially since it is a product of local initiative and human resources.
  • 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!
  • Snow King's parade was awesome.
  • Nice place,, we accidentally crashed there while our way back to Calgary, but spent like 2hours,, it was worth the time,
