I recently hiked a 100km section of the Dawson Overland Trail, an old wilderness road from Whitehorse to Dawson City. The trail was created in 1902 as the first land connection between the two cities in the gold rush era. It allowed for year-round access to Dawson when the river was too frozen for boats, but not frozen enough for travel on the ice.
The trail is maintained and is part of the Trans Canada Trail, popular by snowmobile in winter and cyclists in summer, but I found very little information about hiking the trail. Wanting a bit of a challenge, and to experience true wilderness
