Fodor's Review

Constructed in 1912 by Edwin Capps, this 375-foot suspension bridge originally served as a passageway between isolated neighborhoods and trolley lines. Spanning across Kate Sessions Canyon (commonly referred to as Arroyo Canyon), today this wobbly bridge is considered one of San Diego's best-kept secrets, with its scenic and somewhat hair-raising stroll over treetops below.
