Seymour Suspension Bridge

On December 7, 2014 a large rock slide flooded the Seymour River canyon taking out an important pedestrian bridge linking the west and east side of the river. The decommissioning of what was once known as Twin Bridges resulted in some popular hiking loops being no longer viable.
