Capilano Suspension Bridge

This is now a park, with the suspension bridge, a cliff walk, smaller suspension bridges connecting tree tops, and history stories.

Capilano Suspension Bridge

The Capilano Suspension Bridge is very cool and well worth the trip. Go around noon to get the full effect of the sun coming through the trees.

[James Peuster, 01/30/2015]

The suspension bridge's first incarnation opened for precarious foot traffic in 1889, but was not meant to be a tourist attraction. A sturdier steel cable and cedar plank version built in 1956 still beckons, 230 ft. above the Capilano River.
