"Capilano Suspension Bridge" Capilano Suspension Bridge Tip by Sharrie

Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver: 66 reviews and 128 photos


CAPILANO SUSPENSION BRIDGE: Built by George Grant Mackay in 1889, also the founder of city of Vernon, the bridge was orginial a hemp rope bridge but replaced in 1903 by the wire cable bridge.

It's quite thrilling (while scary for some) to cross the bridge which spans across the living forest.

The Totem Poles were placed by local natives in the exact condition in which they were received.
