NileGuide Expert Says:
Capilano Suspension Bridge may not be for everyone, but there are some gentle hikes within this beautiful location that those afraid of heights can still enjoy. Otherwise, walk across the bridge and test your wits!
- Test your bravery as you cling to the rope that holds the wobbly bridge, made from wooden planks, together. Once you get over the initial fear, you will be blown away by the view of the Capilano River that is 70 meters below you. The bridge is about 136 meters long and is a basic suspension bridge that draws many visitors on a daily basis to its North Vancouver location. The original bridge was built by a Scottish civil engineer named George Grant Mackay in 1888 and was replaced after his death by a wire cable bridge in 1903. The bridge has since gone through many changes, upgrades and reinforcements since that time and is very sturdy.
