Michigan Breaks World Record with Suspension Bridge: What You Need to Know
SkyBridge Michigan will debut as the world’s longest timber-towered suspension bridge and open to the public on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022. The bridge, located at Boyne Mountain Resort, will offer resort guests and northern Michigan visitors a unique year-round activity.
SkyBridge Michigan is positioned between the peaks of McLouth and Disciples Ridge. It stands at approximately 1,200-feet-long. The bridge offers an incredible view of Boyne Valley.
“The experience starts with a chairlift ride to the mountain top, followed by an open-air walk across a suspended five-foot-wide walking surface nearly 118 feet above the valley floor,” a press release states. “Guests can cross and then make a return trip back across the bridge for ample views and thrill. For an unobstructed glimpse of the valley floor below, a thirty six-foot span of see-though glass flooring is located in the middle of the bridge. Eagle’s Nest, the adjacent mountain peak eatery, offers visitors a unique dining experience. Historical resort memorabilia, continued views of Boyne Valley, a full bar and a menu of hearty sandwiches, soups and burgers await guests at the restaurant.”
“With four-season appeal, SkyBridge Michigan is a major attraction for Boyne Mountain Resort, as well as the entire northern Michigan region,” Erin Ernst, Boyne Mountain Resort’s director of communications, said in a statement. “The bridge brings an offering that’s extremely unique for our area. It’s an exciting must-do when planning a trip to northern Michigan, whether for families, couples, or friends.”
