Ranney Gorge Bridge

Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge

As you walk across this great expanse your heart pounds as you feel it sway slightly below your feet. Looking down you can see the water rushing by but to the north you see one of natures gifts, the Ranney Falls in all its glory. To the south you can see the Trent River and the boats as they enter the locks to come into Campbellford.

The new Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge that is located right beside locks 11 & 12 at the south end of Campbellford. It is within easy walking distance from the locks and the boaters will be able to see it as they come up river to Campbellford.

The Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge itself spans 300' from Ferris Provincial Park to the Rotary Trail (part of the Trans Canada Trail) at lock 11/12 located at the south end of Campbellford. This great, family-oriented, natural adventure hovers 30' above the Ranney Gorge just south of the falls.

The Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge is a wonder that you won't want to miss. The beauty of this adventurous journey will change as the seasons go by. The rushing, dangerous water of the spring flow rushing down river. The beauty of the summer boaters as they meander into the locks, pausing to wonder at the beauty of this new bridge. The fall leaves in full colour will only enhance the wonder of nature as you enter the park venture a walk across the bridge. Even a blanket of snow will not deter visitors to the bridge as it has been build using grated slats so that the snow won't build up on it. This way you can witness the ice flows as they drop over the falls and make their way south. Don't worry, the bridge has a capacity of 75,000 lbs!
