During WWII, the US army constructed a road to bring oil from the Mackenzie River in Northwest Territory to a refinery in Whitehorse. Two years after completion, the 176 million dollar project was abandoned. The dirt road is still seasonally maintained by the Canadian government. The winding route takes you through some of the most beautiful northern country in this hemisphere. Bike past pristine lakes with loons calling. Observe relics of the road’s WW II past. View the scenic splendor of the autumn colors in vibrant reds and golds. At night, watch the northern lights overhead from your campsite.
