Capilano's natural high

Visitors to North Vancouver’s Capilano Suspension Bridge and Treetops Adventure said they were interested in learning more about Capilano Canyon itself. Enter the $45-million Cliffwalk, an adrenaline-pumping series of narrow, 50-centimetre-wide walkways drilled into a 160-million-year-old granite cliff face 91 metres above Capilano River.

The walkway stretches 213 metres through previously unexplored areas of the park and includes glass-bottom decks and a u-shaped bridge cantilevered over the river canyon. It can safely support 45,359 kilograms (or 100,000 pounds), but it’s still not for the faint of heart. There’s educational signage throughout with ecological info from the David Suzuki Foundation.

Tickets for all of the park’s attractions are $36.90 for adults; $34.66 for seniors; $30.18 for students 17 and up; $24.58 for teens 13 to 16; $13.44 for kids six to 12. Kids under six free. (877) 985-7474; capbridge.com.
