off of Highway 37 is the Boya Lake Provincial Park offering visitors good
angling, hiking, canoeing and camping opportunities. Some 100 km (62 miles)
from Cassiar is the 60th parallel which is the boundary between BC and
the Yukon. 33 km (20 miles) further is the Alaska Highway.
Journeys to Watson Lake(Peace River/Alaska Highway), Atlin and Atlin Lake
and Whitehorse in the Yukon are possible from the Alaska Highway.
Once a gold rush town, this small community is situated on the eastern
shores of Atlin Lake. With its numerous bays it provides excellent fishing
for lake trout and grayling. The province's largest natural lake is glacier
fed by the Coast Mountains that tower in the background. Atlin is northwest
from Jake's Corner on the Alaska Highway. Visit the Atlin Museum in a
1902 school house displaying gold rush artifacts and providing a walking
tour. The restored Atlin Pioneer Cemetery (1898) is also worth a visit.
