Driving south from Dawson Creek we planned to stop at the historic Kiskatinaw Bridge. It was easy to find, just watch for the large brown wooden road sign that directs you to the bridge. It will say "Alaska Highway Alternate Route". The short road to the Provincial Park and bridge is right off the main highway. You can park on... More

This is just a short drive off the main road, but very quickly delivers you into the past. It is difficult to imagine how men and machine could have built this structure so perfectly and that it has stood the test of time through the harsh winters in the area. The river canyon is pretty impressive and one can see... More

Amazing old wooden trestle bridge in beautiful country. The current Alaska Highway has been re-routed over a new bridge, but you can travel over the old highway and old bridge. The southern intersection is about 18 miles north of Dawson Creek and the northern intersection with the old highway is about 22 miles north of Dawson Creek. If you're interested... More

If only this bridge could talk the stories it would tell. ....... A walk down under the bridge is a must to fully appreciate this engineering marvel. Wear good walking shoes if you plan to hike down. Rock layers are exposed in a vertical timeline as you walk along the rivers edge.

Yes, you can drive your RV over this bridge if you don't weigh more than 20,000 KG or roughly 46,000 pounds. It's also a thrill to drive a little of the original Alaska Highway. The road is a loop so will return you to the main road.

Very unique old curved wood bridge. For another interesting perspective there is a walking trail to the bottom of the bridge from the provincial park.

I haven't driven across this bridge for probably a couple of years or more as it is a couple of miles out of the way. Before the new bridge went in several years ago, I used to drive it every day. It is interesting for the first time Alaska Highway traveller.

The bridge is about 30 km out of Dawson City on the Highway to Fort St Johns. You need to turn off the Alaska Highway onto the old Alaska Highway. It's about 6 km down the road. Very interesting to see the workmanship and skill that went into the creation of this bridge. We recommend not only walking it but... More

We lived for 34 years in BC's North-East so the use of this historic bridge comes natural. We recommend that travellers on either north or south A-Hwy trips, take this small detour, to visit the curved wooden bridge from earlier Alaska Highwat times.
