Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver, Canada

If you haven't already seen photos from Downtown Vancouver, Canada, then you definitely should, it's beautiful.

Furthermore, you can also check out the incredible nature in the Shannon Falls of British Columbia Photos here.

Anyways, while riding around on an electric bicycle in the summer of 2017 in Vancouver, one of the places I visited was this amazing Capilano suspension bridge and it's incredible reserve and complex of bridges on trees and the nature of history.

Getting here was simple, as I could easily do it with an electric bicycle from downtown Vancouver.

What is the Capilano Bridge in Vancouver, Canada?

As a reworded summary from the Capilano Suspension Bridge on Wikipedia, this is a major tourist destination in North Vancouver, that has a 140 meter long (460 feet) suspension bridge that is 76 meters (230 feet) above the Capilano river.

The bridge was originally built in 1899 using hemp and wood, but was upgraded to a wire cable in 1903.

By 1935, various local tribes were invited to place their totems in the park for an added theme.

In 2004, the second major section, the ‘Tree Tops Adventure', was added, consisting of footbridges attached to the gigantic ‘fir' trees.

This is a nice place to visit, and walk around for 2-3 hours, and just enjoy the mixture of nature and man-made suspension bridges and pathways.
