We made an effort to see this curved bridge after stopping in Dawson Creek on our two week Canadian Rockies road trip. While I'd be hard pressed to tell you more about the bridge than Wikipedia, I can say that the bridge, the river and gorge made for a beautiful backdrop for our picnic lunch that day. Well worth the... More

While in Dawson Creek we drove out to the quiet and scenic Kiskatinaw Bridge. The bridge has a historic history and was built by the US Army as part of there route to Alaska. We had a picinic lunch and enjoyed this very peaceful area You can stop and stroll on the bridge and enjoy even more spectacular views.

We visited in late Sept., and the campground was closed, but we wandered around and along the riverbank. The bridge was impressive. Lovely spot. Looks as though it'd be a nice place to camp in the summer.

North side of the bridge in winter is a pretty decent spot for tobogganing in winter time, being a warm drink...

We carpooled out to this bridge and walked over and back. Very interesting engineering. Worth 30 minutes of time to take a look.

This bridge is still in great shape and considering the fact it was built in the 40's. Beautifull curved wooden deck.

Kiskatinaw ! Try saying that 5 times fast. You venture off the Alaskan highway and enter a large crescent (the old Alaska highway) where you can drive the entire thing and get back on route to Fort St. John or Dawson Creek (depending On your direction). Now a lot of people might just think it's a large old bridge... But... More

It was nice to see that the first bridge of the Alaskan highway was kept and still in working condition. Great place to take some pictures. Plenty of room to pull off the road. The canyon was beautiful too.
