New Trestle Bridge in West Vancouver now open

A 200-metre long wooden trestle bridge over Cave Creek in West Vancouver is now open to the public.

The new trestle bridge and Upper Mountain Path were built by developer British Pacific Properties to connect the new Uplands neighbourhoods of Rodgers Creek to the future Cypress Village, an upcoming high-density neighbourhood of 3,700 homes, which we’ve covered extensively here on urbanYVR.com

The design of the new trestle bridge was inspired by the railway trestle bridges throughout B.C. — particularly the Kettle Valley Railway — and utilizes local timber that was processed on-site. It’s currently decorated with warm LED lighting for the holidays.

The east end of the new trestle bridge can be accessed about 500 metres west from the Chippendale Road and Cypress Bowl Road Intersection, north of Cypress Bowl Road.
