several places in and around dawson city will let you try your hand at goldpanning for a not always so moderate fee. don't expect to pan from y river. they normally give you a tiny bucket of earth to pan in a sort of fountain: and you can bet that every bucket contains a little gold dust to make you happy.
Unique Suggestions: at least don't expect to find a nugget
Fun Alternatives: take a half a day tour of the gold fields: it's more authentic and informative: you won't get to pan, but you can see where the history and the legends of the gold rush were made

One need not hike very far from Dawson City to leave all sights and sounds of civilization behind. I took a very pleasant afternoon hike from downtown Dawson City along the Klondyke Millennium Trail, which at this point coincides with the much longer Trans-Canada Trail.
The Trans-Canada Trail, which was begun in 1992, is a non-profit endeavor with the bold vision of bonding Canadians from Coast to Coast to Coast (Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic). It will be the world's longest recreational pathway - about 16,000 km or 10,000 mi. Portions of the trail will be suitable for walking, biking, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling.
Equipment: Hiking boots are great, but tennis shoes will do in summer. If you're going for much more than a short stroll, be prepared for wilderness conditions.
