In 1946 an RCAF DC-3 Dakota struck a mountain in bad weather and crashed near the headwaters of North York Creek, killing all seven on board. Remnants of the plane wreckage can still be seen via a moderately difficult hike of 6.2km each way. If you visit, please do not disturb any of the plane wreckage.

Take the York Creek Road south from Coleman, and park at the bridge over York Creek after approximately 4km. Hike across the bridge and follow the route that leads up the south bank of York Creek. The route eventually forks, and hikers take the right fork across York Creek and up the North York Creek drainage. You may continue past the plane wreckage to pleasant meadows below Mt. Coulthard.
