Are you a risk taker? Someone who thrives on adventure? Do you seek out dangerous opportunities? Or do you like to keep things safe and simple and your feet on level ground?
We happened upon this bridge when we were in Hawaii and I HAD to go on it.
This really wasn’t that big of a risk but if you are nervous about walking on a 3 foot wide bridge that moves a lot while you walk over a body of water this might not be the adventure for you. The Hanapepe Swinging Bridge is a fun little attraction that is still in use for residents to cross the Hanapepe River. Once you cross the narrow bridge there is a gift shop on the bank below and also homes. We respectfully did not walk any farther because this is where people live and there are plenty of other places to walk.
It was really a fun bridge and with a limit of 15 people you can understand the smallness of the structure itself.
This easy to find hot spot in the little town of Hanapepe on the island of Kauai is worth the stop. There is easy parking on the east side of the river, you can walk the bridge and then return without disturbing any of the Hanapepe Valley residents who live on the west side. There are also some nice shops and restaurants in the town to enjoy so make the most of a stop in this little town.
Would you walk across this bridge or would you pass? Let me know in the comments and remember that each comment means a 50 cent donation to our Comments for a Cause – Project: Music Heals Us.
