  • Hagwilget Bridge is our "Eiffel Tower" in terms of its scenic beauty and historic importance! It overlooks an amazing canyon shaped just like the whirl pool canyon at the outlet of Niagara Falls! What is more, the canyon has had archaeological evidence of human use up to 4,000 years ago!
  • A must see on a tourists itinerary, from the Hazelton side you can park, get out and walk the bridge, not a place for people who are afraid of heights.
  • After you take in the view from the bridge itself, make sure to take the time to take the trek down into the canyon!
  • Beautiful environment!
  • Unique bridge and beautiful scenery
