Provides unobstructive view of the great slave lake and the city. I was able to see the Ice Castle and downtown very clearly from the top.

Nothing much to say about Pilot’s Monument Hill, but climbing the stairs rewards you with a great view over lakeside Yellowknife, the house boats and Great Slave Lake.
