Explore the Capilano Suspension Bridge

Added by Ian Tyley

This unique suspension bridge offers scenic forest views just 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver. 

This is a great place to visit to get a feeling for the outdoors of Canada. The bridge is a little scary when a lot of people are walking across, but it is well worth the look.

Measuring 140 m (460 ft) long, the bridge crosses over the Capilano River in the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and sits 70 m (230 ft) above the river.

Beautiful

Super beautiful bridge. There's also a cliff walk (suspension-like bridges alongside the cliffs) and a treetop trek (suspension bridges between the treetops). I love how this area has been protected and not overrun by the expanding city. Pretty accessible, the shuttle from downtown runs frequently and is good. Prices are $37.95 for adult, $30.95 (Kids 13 – 16 is $24.95, kids 6-12 $12.00, kids under 6 are free) BC Residents: Show your BC ID (or proof of residency) at the Guest Services on the way out and they will turn your ticket into an annual pass for free! Four stars only because it can get so ridiculously crowded. I highly recommend early in the morning, especially on weekends. PHOTOGRAPHERS: try to catch that morning golden hour when it opens!

The bridge is great and definitely worth the trip, but so is the surrounding regional park. Hike up the Capilano River and explore the variety of trails.

Be sure to check out the bridge on a weekday or early on the weekend. When I went in the summer, it was pretty crowded. Also, there's a shuttle you can take to/from downtown.
