  • Awesome vantage point to view the city skyline, old town, and the bay with the houseboats, along with learning a bit of history about bush pilots in Yellowknife. Be aware though that the monument is on a hilltop so there are many stairs to climb to get to the top but the view is worth it. Very nice place to be for sunrises, sunsets, auroras, and night skies. Make sure to bring your camera.
  • In Yellowknife for work, had some free time, went to see some sights. The monument is pretty neat, it overlooks a wide lake and some quiet neighborhoods, very picturesque and serene.
  • A must see of you are in Yellowknife! It has a great view of Old Town, as well as the harbour and also parts of downtown Yellowknife. Just need to climb some stairs to get there, and there is a ton of pieces of glass on the rocks, but other than that it is golden!
  • Great way to get a gorgeous view of the bay!
  • Nice views of Yellowknife. Otherwise a nice part of Old Town. Not worth the trip on its own.
