Fodor's Review

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