You’ve likely spent little to no time at all thinking about Thunder Bay recently.
Well, that’s about to change, because we’re about to tell you about one hell of a suspension bridge.
Spanning the stunning Ouimet Canyon about an hour northeast of Thunder Bay, the privately-owned Eagle Canyon suspension bridge is Canada’s longest foot suspension bridge at almost 600 feet.
Bridge walkers teeter above a flowing river below, flanked on each side by steep cliffs that are part of a gorge that was formed over a billion years ago.
The gorge itself is a wonder to behold, as are the natural surroundings. Visitors can take bask in the beauty from several platforms and boardwalks, or take the daring route by ziplining from one side of the gorge to the other.
Anthophiles will be thrilled with the area’s abundance of rare alpine flowers, which are usually found a thousand kilometres further towards the Arctic Circle.
Capilano Suspension Bridge, meet your match.
