This short trail starts at the Five Finger Rapids scenic viewpoint north of Carmacks. It was named by the five fingers formed by rock pillars. The rapids had to be negotiated during the gold rush days by many pioneers. The site provides a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the Yukon river. The trail has interpretive signs and viewing points. The riverbank is down a steep slope with stairs along the trail.

Directions:

Drive north of Carmacks for 23 km along the Klondike Hwy. There is a rest stop with a viewing platform. Walk down the stairs for the trail. Carmacks is 175 km north of Whitehorse.

Given the historic significance, it is a much see.
