The bridge connects the extensive hiking trails on the two sides of the canyon and is part of the Baden-Powell Trail. However, many of the tourists do not hike, and only visit the suspension bridge. The free-to-access bridge is often compared to the nearby and widely advertised Capilano Suspension Bridge. While the bridge is shorter and not as high, it is narrower and moves around more when people walk on it. For many locals, a major part of the attraction is the difference in price.
Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction - In a short story the bridge was used as a filming location and given the fictional name "Syke's Bridge", located on the "Misty Loop Trail". The bridge subsequently broke later in the episode. (episode 44, 2002 — "The Bridge" — said to be true and to have taken place in Texas (USA) in the 1960s)
