Elk Falls Suspension Bridge

Prepare to have your breath taken away!

In the Spring of 2015 the Elk Falls Suspension Bridge opened up to the public. The bridge was a joint community project between the Campbell River Rotary Club, BC Parks and BC Hydro. Upgrades to the trail were completed, along with the construction of an impressive stairway that leads you to either the raised and cantilevered viewing platform or the suspension bridge itself which is suspended over Elk Falls Canyon, providing visitors the incredible views of Elk Falls and headwaters of the world famous Campbell River. The bridge was built as an added attraction to the already popular destination Elk Falls Provincial Park.

This favoured destination within Campbell River Region is now rated as #2 for Things to Do in Campbell River on Trip Advisor. Be sure to share your images with #DiscoverCampbellRiver to be featured!
