A nice hike up from the lower parking to the upper parking by the bridge. It is very rocky and it was helpful to have hiking boots on, versus tennis shoes.

A rocky and winding pathway, wide enough and well maintained for a hike from the parking lot to the Mile High Swinging Bridge. As easy hike as well.

Nice attraction. It could make you nervous if you don’t care for heights

Great short hike, conditions definitely made a big difference in how tough the trail was. My wife had a tough time with the rocks due to the water.

I took this short trail from the Mile High Swinging Bridge parking area to connect with the Black Rock Nature Trail. The trail's most unique view is of the Swinging Bridge as you pass underneath it.
