A triple serving of singletrack
Always a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, the Yukon has become a top destination for mountain bikers looking for extraordinary trails with something special. Thrill-a-minute riding? Breathtaking panoramas? Yes, and yes. Plus, many of these trails trace culturally significant First Nations footpaths or follow historic gold and silver mining routes.
Hit a bike shop or a Visitor Information Centre for some local knowledge, then get on a bike and go. Tour operators also offer rental bikes and guided rides. Or if you’re looking for the full package, stay at a wilderness lodge where you can sleep in a yurt, soak in a hot tub and enjoy local cuisine at a communal table. Then get up and do it all again.
Consider downloading this Whitehorse Trail Guide app. With over 700km of local and neighbourhood trails in the Whitehorse area alone, the app focuses primarily on the non-motorized recreational trails that are becoming world-renowned for their accessibility, variety and epic views. Plus, the app is able to work without a cell signal or wifi.
Saddle up for an epic ride with Casey Brown, Micayla Gatto and Georgia Astle as they negotiate some tread-churning tracks on Mt. Sima, Mt. McIntyre, and Montana Mountain in Carcross. The scene is alive and kicking and whipping with endless trails to shred. Watch the video below.
