Robert Campbell Highway
« on: January 11, 2012, 07:59:23 am »
There is a dirt and gravel remote 360 mile highway from Watson Lake, Yukon to Carmacks, Yukon called the Robert Campbell Highway. 

I'll be taking it on my route to Alaska this summer, but would really like to talk to someone who has ridden it.  Years ago, ACA used this road on their North Star route.

Is there anyone out there??

crazyguyonabike has several journals that reference this highway. You might try searching over there and then contacting the authors via their guestbooks.

I rode this in 2006 with ACA.

We'd get a couple of cars a day, so it's not like it's truely desolate.  There were some duos riding north to south, but it might be prudent to have a bit larger group than that.  Compared to the Cassiar, we saw very few (if any) bears.  Water was plentiful, but food resupply was scarce.  The scenery, frankly, was only so-so.  If I were to go again, I'd try the Alaskan Hwy.
