Suspension bridge

 

It goes around and around the suspension bridge over the Indalsälven in Ragunda. The bridge was built more than 100 years ago to connect the villages of Västerede / Österede with Edesmoarna. The bridge was built around 1932. The bridge has been threatened with demolition on some occasions, but has been saved by non-profit organizations. The Friends of the Suspension Bridge were founded to enable the renovation of a unique suspension bridge. Today the bridge is part of the active outdoor life and a wooden windshield has been built nearby. The windshield is located on the west side and only 75 meters from the suspension bridge. Do not forget to bring sausage and sandwiches and make a fire at the shelter and enjoy the peace and the view of the bridge.
