Past Hell’s Gate along Highway 1 is Boston Bar, a town that got its name due to a large majority of gold seeking Americans from Boston which local aboriginals called the “Boston Men.” Boston Bar is the gateway to some of the most beautiful camping areas in the world including the Nahatlatch River Valley, Skuzzy Creek, Anderson Creek, North Bend and more, where river rafting, gold panning, fishing and hiking adventures await.
Explorers can take a trip over to North Bend when in Boston Bar. This community at one point was accessible by aerial ferry which carried vehicles and people over the Fraser River, but now is easily accessible by the Cog Harrington Bridge built in 1986. Today the aerial ferry, along with displays depicting the history of the area, is open for public viewing in Francis Harrington Park.
