Million Dollar Falls and Dalton Post, Haines Road YT

3 September 2009 PM Exploring

The world-renowned Tatshenshini River is near the Million Dollar Falls campground. Dalton Post is the starting spot for many river rafting adventures and it is near the campground. It was a good evening for more exploring!

The access to the road to Dalton Post is a few miles north of the Million Dollar Falls campground. The road is a narrow gravel road that is steep downhill to the river.

The Tatshenshini River at this site would be an easy launching spot for river rafts.

Dalton Post was a trading post, circa 1890, on the Dalton Trail. Some of the old buildings still remain, although not in good condition. The buildings are located on First Nations land and there are signs requesting visitors to respect the history and the land, which we do in all of Yukon.
