Fabulous falls at the far side of the valley cutting across the white pass and Yukon railway line. It is a great setting and we were lucky enough to get the train passing at thew same time

Note, you can only view this waterfall from the road across the valley. Still stunning! To the right side of the falls is a 48” pipe that powers the generator for all of Skagway.

We didn't see this water fall close up. On our way to Yukon Suspension Bridge, we made a stop to see this beauty on the opposite side of the Klondike Highway. From afar I can see it more complete and much better. The water flowing from Goat Lake to Skagway River, the water falls do look like a pitchfork. Not too far from the falls, I also saw a man made snake,  (a pipeline visible from across the valley, where we were) I asked our guide and driver, he said that is a hydroelectric project, providing electricity to the community of Skagway. That is an unique site to see.
Happy Travelling!

We stopped to view these falls which are spectacular.... They derive a long way up the mountain and resemble a pitchfork as they spread out at the bottom.

We enjoyed this stop. We saw so many really wonderful waterfalls. This one was just not quite as spectacular as some of the others. It was still worth the stop.

As part of our tour it was a good stop. Great photographs and a good bit of exercise walking.It rained on the day of our visit but we still enjoyed the experience.

Nice part of the landscape of Alaska. We viewed this from a train, so if you want good shots of the falls from the train bring a large telephoto lens. Not the most spectacular but a good scenic shot of Alaska if you have a clear day.If you want more of a closeup experience, try a coach tour.

Our helicopter tour was cancelled due to weather, so we hopped a bus to the old cemetery and as you walk through the 1890’s cemetary follow the trail up to this amazing waterfall. We went as far as we could due to rain and slippery rock but it was well worth it. The water was rushing down so fast that sound was awesome.

We hired a car from Skagway and drove the Yukon Highway to Emerald Lake.
We spotted The Pitchfork Falls on the outward journey so, on the return leg, we stopped. Spectacular waterfall with parking alongside the road. Pity it had started raining when we stopped but worth the detour.
