Thank you for attending our soft opening ribbon cutting ceremony on December 15, 2016 and our grand opening event on May 11, 2017.

The City of Trail, in conjunction with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, the City of Rossland the Village of Warfield, worked together to bring the Skywalk to our communities. The bridge officially opened on December 15, 2016.

The Columbia River Skywalk is one of the longest suspension bridges of its kind in North America at 1000 ft. landing to landing.  The walkway, which is also bike-friendly, is 12 ft. wide and is made from a composite material.  This signature structure is part of the vast Trans Canada Trail network and provides the region with vital utility crossings.  Construction of the bridge took 14 months and the total cost of the project was $15.5 million.   This is the City of Trail's largest capital project to date.
