Seymour River Suspension Bridge

As of December 20, 2018, the new Seymour River Suspension Bridge is open and once again, the hiking and mountain biking trails on the east and west sides of the river are connected. This includes trails such as the Fisherman’s Trail and the hiking route connecting multiple trails known as Two Canyon Loop.

The approximate coordinates of the suspension bridge in North Vancouver are: 49.341853, -123.001962

There has been no crossing at this point in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve since the former Twin Bridge collapsed in 2014 after a rock slide blocked the river just down stream.
