I ran there early morning. Neighborhood looked nice, no signs of anything unpleasant and the area of the bridge and around was clean. Bridge is fun, great construction and it is a bit odd, when I ran over it, it bounced up and down! But...More

I made a point of visiting this bridge while on a walking trip through the Hillcrest neighbourhood as it's not too far from there. Crossing this bridge was a thrill. It wobbles and sways as others walk along it. The guard wires do not leave...More

This was a fun adventure. We saw some interesting San Diego homes along the route getting there. We parked very near on a neighborhood street. The suspension pedestrian bridge offers a high view of local flora. It sways just a bit. Easy to do if...More

It was good to walk on the wooden bridge and see the beautiful green view . It's old and worth to see how was the bridge before

I liked this bridge but if you are afraid of heights I would just look or barely step on it. You can walk on this bridge over a canyon which is a long way down. It also swings as you are walking.

This was a quick visit, maybe 10 minutes. Walked (and swayed) across the bridge. The bridge will sway with a lot of people walking across. Its well maintained. Some visitors have added love locks to the cables of the bridge. We parked on the street...More

This suspension bridge gets you from one side of a deep canyon to the other side in the Bankers' Hill section of San Diego. For foot traffic only, and built over 100 years ago. No one else on the bridge mid-Friday afternoon when I found...More
