Redding, California: Sun Dial Glass Bridge

Walk on glass, see the water race between your feet, but you are not wet! The sundial aspect of the design is not an accurate gnomon, so don't try to tell time with it.

Sundial Bridge. Sun Dial Glass Bridge

This is an awesome glass-floored suspension foot bridge using its only mast as a breathtaking, beautiful working sundial, unlike anything I've ever seen. It only has time markers to 3 pm so if you get here late you will have to bring a watch. Just west of the 5 in Redding.

Because the bridge was so incredibly expensive to build, there are hidden cameras everywhere!

Sundial Glass Bridge. Sun Dial Glass Bridge

Fun, neat to see the bridge. Don't bother with the garden, pretty lame and all on a hot dirt road.

Glass Bridge

The Sun Dial Bridge is a glass bridge built over a river. During the day you can walk over it and see the river. At night, you can see the water lighted up through the bridge. Very nice attraction. 700 feet long, 23 feet wide.
