Follow in the footsteps of the millions of visitors who have crossed Capilano Suspension Bridge since 1889.
The original Capilano Suspension Bridge was built in 1889. Its first cables were actually hemp ropes. Since then the ropes have been replaced with cables strong enough to hold up a fully loaded 747 airliner! The bridge is 450 feet (137 m) long and hangs 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River. Millions of people from all over the world have visited the bridge including rock stars, movie stars, and royalty!
The bridge is 230 feet (70 metres) above the Capilano River. If you put the Statue of Liberty in the canyon, the bridge would be at her shoulder height
The bridge can hold up to 96 full grown elephants
