Golden Skybridge

Canada’s Highest Suspension Bridge

As you perch 426 feet above an expansive canyon, engulfed by the Columbia Valley, the epic views from Golden’s newest, must-visit attraction will take your breath away. The Golden Skybridge rewards with views of the Rocky and Purcell mountain ranges like you’ve never seen before, while a crashing river and 200-foot waterfall thunders below.

Thompson Falls

Thompson Falls is a small, open site just above a series of falls and rapids on the Blaeberry River. It is a short 200 meter walk from the site to the falls. There is also a short trail that follows the river bank heading south west for about 500 meters.
