Eagle Canyon is about 65km north east of Thunder Bay and about 4km form Ouimet Canyon. They claim to have Canada's longest foot suspension bridge at 600 feet long and 150 feet above the canyon floor.
Here is a shot from the 600 ft bridge looking back to the 300 ft. bridge.

This is looking across the 600 ft. one.


This is on the 300 ft bridge looking toward the 600 ft. bridge.
Notice the path on the right that lets you walk down to the floor. Rather steep!


Since these were taken they have installed a half mile long Zipline that starts 175 feet above the floor and ends on the canyon floor.

Very cool. Looks like a nice place to visit though going down the stairs or the zipline would be fine I'm not so sure about coming back up! :)

Lovely set, XP. Does the suspension bridge sway? At that height and length, that could be unnerving!

On a calm or light breeze day it has a nice bounce. When I was leaning on the net to take pictures I could feel a little queasy in my stomach.
On a real strong windy day I was told it can turn sideways, needless to say you can not walk across it in high winds.:sad:

Very beautiful looking place. I'm getting vertigo just looking at the pictures.
