9th Avenue Trail

Trail description

The trail skirts Dawson’s core area and ties in with the pre-existing Dyke / Klondyke Millennium Trail.

It is an easy walking trail, with some light gradients. It includes several sections of stairs.

The trail follows sections of an historic trail from the Klondike Goldrush era. 

Historic resources (including old household litter) are found along the length of trail, and are protected under the Yukon Historic Resources Act.
