Quite simply an excellent view of Yellowknife, Old Town and the harbour. Walked from my hotel (Chateau Nova) daily to this view spot. Simply stunning!

The Pilot's monument is easy to walk to from the center of town and offers a nice view of the town and the river. It has steps to the top so it is easy to reach.

Great view of the harbour and houseboats, easy climb to the top of the stairs. Watch yourself on the rocks if it is wet, can be slippery.

This monument is at top of hill reachable only by steep staircase. It offers both a history lesson and superb views of Great Slave Lake and Old Town Yellowknife NWT. Worth the effort.

Great place to get a view of Old Town. Worth the little walk a and stairs. The series of plaques up here provide a good overview of some of the colourful history of the area.

Stunning vistas in all directions from up top... Just a few wooden steps up and you can see old town, Great Slave Lake and read about the pilots that opened up the north.

This is a place to get a look around the old town. Do it first on getting to old town, as it is a bit of a walk up the road and then a stair climb. Not accessible, or course...

First day in Yellowknife and I made Old Town my first destination. If you're looking for "the view" of the entire city and its natural setting, this is a must do.

Would recommend this spot as a great vantage point for an visitor to Yellowknife. It pays a well-earned hommage to Bush Pilot's with a nice view of Old Town, House Boats and Float Planes.

This is a must see when you are in Yellowknife. It has a total view of the city as well as Great Slave Lake.
