Elk Falls and the Suspension Bridge

Elk Falls, and the surrounding Provincial Park, has long been an attraction for people visiting the Campbell River area. Three years ago, the local Rotary Club funded a suspension bridge and new trail to view the falls and it is proving to be a popular spot with locals and tourists. It provides clear 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 parking lot takes you through a forested area, along easy trails. You can also access the old viewing area and trails from this trail system.

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 and the river before it. 

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 ... Live It!
