Site description:
Has two 1.5 to 2.5 km connected interpretive trail loops. One follows ridge, and the other follows Moose Creek to the Stewart River (Nächo Nyak Gé).

The trail goes through open forest to willows on the floodplain. Look for old spruce trees along the ridge.

The river and creek have popular fishing holes.
