Must See

Another must see along the Alaskan Hwy. and while in Dawson's Creek. Part of the original hwy. built in 1942-1943 rebuilt apparently but a big part of the history here.

interesting to see this part of the Alaska Highway history. Worth the quick sidetrip off the main highway to see.

The provincial park has great spots and there are ones that are along the river. The beach under the bridge is a great place to swim as the water is still.

This bridge as built for the original Alaska Highway. It's a short distance from the current route of the Alaska Highway and worth the diversion. The views of and from this bridge are incredible. Their are campsites on the south side of the bridge down by the river. Note: Large RV's should pay attention to the bridge's weight limit.

Worth the time to stop and see. They need to cut down/back a few cottonwoods for better views. Gives you a sense of what the old highway (70's, naught the 50's) was like.

Worth the stop. Beautiful area, be careful on the trails next to the bridge many are steep. Also watch for wildlife they like to make surprise appearances.
