Mountain Biking

With seemingly endless wilderness and rolling hills and mountain ranges as far as the eye can see, Dawson City is the perfect place for mountain biking!

Love long-haul trails? Then the Ridge Road Heritage Trail is for you. Originally a wagon road built to service miners out on the creeks, it takes you to the top of King Solomon’s Dome for some fantastic views, and features gold rush history and artifacts along the way. The lower trailhead can be found in the Callison Industrial area south of Dawson City, just follow the signs on the Klondike Highway. The upper trailhead can be accessed from Bonanza Creek Road. Drive 13 km along Bonanza Creek Road, then turn left, crossing the creek onto Upper Bonanza Road. Drive 16.9 km until you reach a pull-out on the left where the trail begins.

You also have access to some stellar single-track trails that come down the Midnight Dome and right into town, including three black-diamond routes. These trails are in their infancy, but we think they’re some of the best in the territory! Aside from the steep downhills, these trails feature lots of jumps, wall-rides and ramps. Arrange for a ride to take you up to the top of the Dome, or bike up via the road. Be sure to give yourself lots of time to take in the vistas!
