Easy hike that ends at cool suspension bridge. Dog was a bit spooked by the bridge but with some good treats and encouragement, she did it.

Amazing, wish we would have come to this trail first. It's definitely worth it.

You get to see water for most of the hike, the trail also starts out paved.

View from the bridge is also spectacular.

Easy trail till the swinging bridge. If you don't do well with Heights look straight ahead walk carefully and breath, but don't run . Respect other people on the bridge and wait for parties to clear the bridge before steeping onto it. it was worth crossing over the bridge for the views, the video my family took might beg to differ with the expressions on my face.

Quick stop on Hwy 2 near Troy, MT at the Kootenai River Historical Marker. The trail will require you to climb stairs over a railway. The bridge can only support a few people as it is narrow, but it is very beautiful and worth the stop to cool off. Snacks and drinks were available at the food stand. Toilets are also available. Swimming is available on the trail that leads over to Kootenai Falls which is connected to the trail to the bridge.
