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.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Good For Exercise, The View Is Okay, But Very Crowded And Not What I Expected

I highly anticipated visiting here on my second vacation to BC because of all the breathtaking photographs I've seen of this place. However, unless you go there first thing in the morning, it becomes incredibly crowded and not as enjoyable. We walked all of the surrounding trails, including the tree-top bridges where we ran into a quite annoying bunch of teens that thought it amusing to jump on each bridge, scaring my friend. I wish there were more employees to deter this behavior. Perhaps I would visit again if there were less people, but I don't think it would be worth it any other time of day. I will have to say though, as someone from out of town, I was very satisfied with the gift shop selections and I'm not much of a souvenir person. I got a much needed pair of gloves and hat that felt authentic to Canadian style without being overtly so.

Cool spot, but go early!

Slightly over-hyped in my opinion but if you're in Vancouver area this is still a place you should see at least once. Don't get me wrong, this is a stunning bridge and area but the cost and crowds can be less than ideal. If anything, aim to be there first thing in the morning.

Cool, but pricey for what you get.

Pretty awesome little spot just outside town. Sort of lame that it costs money.
