Walk where miners walked on suspension bridge

The Star Mine Suspension Bridge in Rosedale, is a charmingly quaint piece of Drumheller Valley nostalgia. The 117 metre bridge was originally built to enable miners to work at the Star Mine on the north side of the Red Deer River, across from the community of Rosedale. Although the mine opened in 1912, it wasn’t until 1931 that the original bridge was constructed. The coal miners were originally required to cross the river to and from work in row boats.
