The Liard River – Located on Mile 496 on the Alaska Highway, bring your canoe and paddles if you are one to challenge various stretches of the 1400-kilometre Liard River, which boasts rapids as difficult as those one the Colorado River. It is also known to be a great place to fish for grayling and if you look a hundred yards or so upstream of the bridge you just might be able to see some ruins of old squatter cabins. The Liard River Suspension Bridge – was built in 1944 and is the only remaining suspension bridge on the Alaska Highway.
