There are benches and interpretive signs with lots of historic photos places at several points along the trail, all offering spectacular views over Kluane Lake and/or the Slims River. The sign here, entitled "The Trail of '42", has facts from 3 dates:
- April 3, 1942: Arrival of US Army troops in Whitehorse
- May 22, 1942: Tenders called for construction of the permanent Alaska Highway
- August 24, 1942: From a soldier's diary: "Corduroy again today. Road still in bad shape after recent rains. Slowly this mud hole is resembling a road."
