Located in the Hazeltons, the Hagwilget Suspension Bridge crosses a huge canyon over the Bulkley River. This single lane bridge is a spectacular sight for anyone lucky enough to see it. It connects you to the Gitksan-Wet’suwet’en traditional territory and is on the way towards ‘Ksan and the nearby Gitksan village of Kispiox where their famous Totem Field is located. The This magnificent structure is one of many single-lane bridges in the area, but this one is by far the most spectacular one and it is a must to see. If you are on your way to ‘Ksan or the Kispiox Totem Field then make sure you add this bridge to your list. Get out of your car and take some pictures, and for the brave ones, go stand in the middle of the bridge when cars are crossing over. The bridge will shake with the vibrations of the cars and will definitely get your stomach turning a bit when you look down at the fast flowing Bulkley River below.
