If you didn't want to finish the wood at all, maybe you could use a router and put some grooves in at a jaunty angle to provide some extra grip.

I do like all the above suggestions, though...

I know the grip tape works great, but like the textured paint idea better - just don't cheap out. Buy good stuff that will handle the elements and do the appropriate stuff so the paint penetrates/sticks.

I've seen chicken wire wrapped around boards and that helps a fair amount, especially in sloppy/muddy areas.

Well-attached chicken wire works well when new, but the problem is that it eventually rusts and snags and becomes a terrible trip hazard. I've seen a older foot bridges in parks and refuges with lifted chicken wire that caused a couple of nasty falls. And depending on how well you've stapled or nailed it it is a PITA to remove and replace.

I'd rather have a handrail than any of the other solutions offered. Even if the bridge gets a little slick.

Then again, our course has 6 or 8 wood bridges, none of which have handrails.

One thing that helps a bit is gaps between the treads. Particularly if the treads are 2x4s or 2x6s, so they have sharp edges.

Before you do that put on some of the Water Seal stuff.

I say go with the Truck Bed Liner stuff. That will last longer then the textured paint.
