Lace up your sneakers and get ready to walk a Michigan landmark. The annual International Bridge Walk takes an easy pace and provides spectacular views of the twin Saults, the St. Marys River rapids, and the Soo Locks. Young and old, physically fit and fitness challenged, all enjoy the fantastic views and the resulting pictures that will last a lifetime.

Best of all, there’s no admission fee, no long waits, and no sweltering heat to contend with since the walk steps off at 9:00 AM.

Parking is at the Norris Center at Lake Superior State University.

Sponsored by the International Bridge Authority and the Chamber of Commerce from both cities, organizers remind walkers to bring a passport or other approved ID found in the Soo Area Info, International Bridge Customs section of this site.
