BCO Coastal Gem: Elk Falls Suspension Bridge

Thanks to the Rotary Club, Campbell River has a new suspension bridge at Elk Falls Provincial Park. The 60 metre long bridge was completed in May of this year, and has been attracting quite a bit of attention. It provides new views of the Falls as well as a look down the narrow canyon that follows from the Falls.
The walk to the bridge from the brand new parking area takes you through a forested area, along easy trails. 

To get to the bridge itself be prepared for some steep stairs. The stairs take you down further to a viewing platform (almost directly across from the old platform) which gives an amazing view of the Falls.  

Of course, the star of the show is Elk Falls, on the Campbell River, the third and largest of a series of falls (Deer and Moose being the other two).

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
