Put-in: Johnson’s Crossing   Take-out: Dawson City

The Teslin River was one of the routes used by the Klondike goldrushers of 1897-99 to reach the goldfields of Dawson. As such, there are historical reminders of a period that saw the movement of people and sternwheelers along banks once dotted with wood camps, mining works, and trading centers. Not only does it offer that connection to its goldrush days but it is also provides an excellent wilderness experience.
