I did a guided walk thru the visitor's center that went along this trail. A nice walk up to where you have views of the Yukon River and the surrounding town. Not a lot of wildlife but nice foliage views.

Definitely a good way to pass an hour or more when visiting Dawson. Not many trails immediately outside town, so this one was welcomed!

This is a nice trail with minimal elevation, but it does have stairs so if you bring your bike you'll have to do some carrying. Cool to see some history of the town along this trail, nice walk when the fall colours are settling in.

Found the trail by accident. It is beautiful and quiet even though it skirts the backyards of Dawson residents.

This trail goes around the edge of town. It is easy access and hike or go for a run on. You can see some interesting houses from the bush but not much of anything else. Great short trail to get away from people and be...More

Probably would have been better when it was first built as trees have grown up blocking the view from many of the viewing benches placed at spots along the trail. One of the old homes on 9th Avenue is still in the process of falling...More

Walked part of the trail but we were a little concerned about the bears when the park ranger asked if we had bear spray with us. I would have walked more but I didn't want to run into any bears during the early spring season...More

This is a relative short trail around three miles and gives a great view of Dawson City and the Yukon River . There are remnants of old homes that were constructed during the gold rush along this trail. The trail is not well marked in...More
