Pinawa’s Suspension Bridge allows visitors and local residents a greater opportunity to discover and appreciate the natural beauty of the Pinawa district on this branch of the Trans Canada Trail. Located off the Alice Chambers Trail, it is 54 metres long and 1 metre wide. Crossing the Pinawa Channel north of the Pinawa Cemetery, the bridge is part of a loop for interpretive walks, casual fishing, and cross-country skiing. The Pinawa Channel Heritage Walk on the north side of the channel is accessed either by the suspension bridge or the diversion dam at the end of PR 211.
The bridge was built by volunteer labour under the direction of the Pinawa Trails Group, and is known to many in the community as the “Labour of Love”, completed in the fall of 1998 with the grand opening on May 24, 1999.
Also featured at this site is a covered picnic shelter.
