Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Star Mine Suspension Bridge with additional information or photos.
Originally built in 1931 to replace an earlier cable car system, the Star Mine Suspension Bridge provided coal miners access to the Star Mine across the Red Deer River until 1957. The 380-foot pedestrian bridge was rebuilt in 1958 when the mine closed, and now offers a breezy and bouncy walk with beautiful views over the river for visitors enjoying hikes and picnics in the Alberta Badlands.
Know Before You Go
Just outside of Drumheller, the bridge is free to access and is next to a parking lot.
