This well-maintained walking trail follows the Yukon river on top of the dike along main street Dawson, from the south end of town to the ferry landing.

Great views of the historic town, the river and ferry, and the Keno steam wheeler. Good place for a walk or bike ride and enjoy the park, which follows along the river.

There are many picnic tables, benches a gazebo and interesting stops along the way. The Robert Service cabin, where the famous poet of the Yukon lived during the gold rush, is a short walk from the river.

Recently the city built a Camera Obscura shack in the park near the gazebo. Go inside this large pinhole camera to view the entire main street as a large upside-down image.

Directions:

The trailhead is about 1 km south of the central part of Dawson City, just across from the Crocus Bluffs, but the trail is easy to reach from any place along the riverfront. The ferry landing is at the far end of town about 2 kilometers away.
