Known for the violent waters of the Fraser River, this portion was nicknamed Hell's Gate, a name that eventually stuck. It was formerly a difficult crossing to make by boat and is now a leisurely attraction. The famous mountain side tram, a spectacular journey of its own, crosses over the Fraser River and also features quaint shops, a restaurant, and interpretive centre.
Popular vegetation mixture home to the area includes; Douglas fire, ponderosa pine, bigleaf maple, and western red cedar.

Originally known as Quayome, Boston Bar, was home to the Nlaka'pamux tribe of First Nation. In their mother tongue, Chinook Jargon, the name was derived to describe the "Bostons", whitemen who came from the south. "Bar", in English of course, referred to gold-bearing sand bar or sandy riverbed.

Boston Bar was a frequented stop over during the times of the gold rush (late-1800's). It has since developed very little, and the incredible views have made it the newest stop-over, tourist highlight of today!

Summer average 22 degrees Celsius
