The Skeena Ghost Town of Dorreen

The once early 1900’s ghost town of Dorreen was home to 200-400 gold miners.  Our visit to this charming little town will be by Jet Boat as it is only accessible by Jet Boat or via rail.  it is possible to have via rail drop you off at the town and then when you want to get picked up in a couple of days you have to place the “visi-vest” cut out next to the tracks to let the train engineer know that you need to be picked up.  The town is well manicured and has a series paths  that make for an enjoyable day of exploring and revisiting the past.
