Hell's Gate

Hell's Gate is the narrowest portion of the Fraser River and during the spring freshet, the river may rise as much as 100 feet. At low water, the river is 100 feet deep. This is also the site of a fish ladder complex and the Hell's Gate Airtram. Parking is available on each side of the highway with an overpass to connect to the Airtram. A foot path and bridge connect the two river banks. So the choice is yours, to walk (15 minutes down and 30 minutes back) or take the scenic Airtram.

The Fish Ladders were first constructed in 1944 and have seen regular improvement since they were opened. Details about the Fish Ladders are commemorated on the Fishways Cairn. The Hell's Gate Airtram features a spectacular view, gift shops, restaurant, ice cream and a fudge factory.
