Kootenai Falls Suspension Bridge

Updated: Jan 16

If you're wondering what to do this weekend near Bonners Ferry, an adventurous day trip is to walk over to the Kootenai Falls Suspension Bridge.

"The first bridge was built by the Civilian Conserva-tion Corps in 1937 to improve access for fire fighting. The bridge was destroyed by flooding in 1948. In the 1950’s, the bridge was rebuilt on concrete towers. The bridge was reconstructed on the existing cables and supports in 1993.

The Swinging Bridge and Kootenai Falls are a very popular attraction and usage of the bridge has in-creased substantially over the past decade. In 2018 the Forest Service determined that reconstruction of the bridge would be necessary to improve public safety." -
