Originally built in 1969, spanning 77 metres and hanging just seven metres above the churning waters of the Storms River, the Storms River suspension bridge is situated in the Tsitsikamma National Park (which forms part of the Garden Route National Park) and is one of the most popular tourist attractions of the Tsitsikamma. The bridge has since been rebuilt by San-Parks to ensure its stability and safety.
The pathway leading to the suspension bridge covers 900 metres of the Tsitsikamma forest. There are plenty of steps to negotiate, but it remains a fairly easy route, particularly if covered slowly. The walk takes you to a pebble beach, before ascending steeply to a viewpoint over the coast – well worth the effort for the magnificent views.
There are two smaller suspension bridges that take visitors back to the pathway for their return journey. There are a number of rest spots along the way, where you are able to take a break and savour the wonderful and scenic vistas.
