SkyBridge Michigan Now Open As World's Longest Timber-Towered Suspension Bridge

SkyBridge Michigan is now open as the world’s longest timber-towered suspension bridge. Over a year in the works, SkyBridge Michigan made its highly anticipated debut to the public on Saturday, October 15, hosting thousands of guests on opening weekend.

A pedestrian bridge, SkyBridge Michigan is positioned between the peaks of McLouth and Disciples Ridge and is located at renowned Michigan destination, Boyne Mountain Resort. Standing at approximately 1,200-feet-long, bridge visitors experience a thrilling adventure with panoramic views of Boyne Valley and this season’s picturesque fall foliage.

The SkyBridge Michigan experience starts with a chairlift ride to the mountain top taking in the picturesque fall foliage. Following, visitors embark on the open-air walk across the bridge’s suspended five-foot-wide walking surface 118 feet above Boyne Valley. Upon crossing, guests make a return trip back across the bridge. An unobstructed glimpse of the valley floor below meets guests in the middle of the bridge through a thirty six-foot span of glass flooring. Eagle’s Nest, the adjacent mountain peak eatery, offers visitors a unique dining experience with historical resort memorabilia, more fall foliage views of Boyne Valley, a full bar and a menu of sandwiches, soups and burgers.

SkyBridge Michigan is open daily, from 10:00am to dusk through October 31; Friday-Sunday only starting November 4 through December 4; then open daily for the winter season beginning December 9. Tickets are valid for the day. Fall pricing starts at $25 for adults (ages 11-69), $20 for seniors (ages 70+), $15 juniors (ages 3-10), and free for ages two and under. SkyBridge Michigan is RFID compatible. Guests can reload a Go Card, the same media used for resort lift tickets, for direct-to-bridge access.
