The easiest hike to the Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge in Draper is from Orson Smith Park. Path is well maintained, and there are frequent bicycles on the upper trail. A short hike past the hike the suspension bridge is the old pine bridge. Worth the bit extra to see.

A nice hike for our 4 year old son. We saw lizards, beetles and a snake! Keep to your left the entire time until you get to the bridge.

This is a pretty rad little hike, not particularly scenic, but some great views of the valley. We took our dog and she loved it. The bridge itself is super cool. There's no shade on the trail, so do it at dawn or dusk. We were nearing the end around 8:30 AM and it was starting to get really hot.

Really good, easy hike. Good one to do after work or for a short time in the morning. It's low in the valley so it's pretty hot in the summertime, but the view along the bench is so pretty. The bridge itself is very cool too!

Took my 2 sons and 2 dogs on this hike today. great views and photo ops. Cougar warnings at the beginning of the trail were a little concerning but we spotted none, though heard underbrush rustling many times. The bridge path wasn't marked, and the boys voted to take a flatter nne path than the uphill (bridge) path, so the 2 mile hike turned into a 3-4 mile looping hike. There are no refuse bins along the trail so if you bring dogs keep that in mind. We spent at least half the hike toting stinky doggy bags (sorry fellow hikers!). The bridge was neat and a little springy to walk on. Great hike!
