The Most Remote Biking Adventure



The Most Remote Biking Adventure

There are hundreds of kilometres of old mining roads and trails in the Yukon, and more and more of these overgrown routes are being discovered for mountain biking. The epic Canol Heritage Trail is like no other long distance wilderness ride. The Canol is a rugged route that was cut through sub-alpine wilderness during World War II to service a long-gone pipeline.

Today, the Canol is one of the most remote mountain bike rides in the world, with sweeping vistas and abundant wildlife and absolutely no services or settlements along the way. The 160-kilometre (100-mi.) stretch between Macmillan Pass and the Twitya River offers some of the best riding. Bikers often have to ford a few streams, but the awe-inspiring surrounding scenery is well worth it. This is not a journey for novices or the feint of heart.
