West of Liard River Hot Springs, the Alaska Highway follows the British Columbia-Yukon border westward, crossing it seven times before reaching the town of Watson Lake. After traversing a broad lowland, the road passes through the northern end of the Cassiar Mountains and enters the Lake District of the southern Yukon. Large lakes dot the route to Whitehorse, which is the territorial capital and largest population center in the Yukon Territory. The highway continues westward, finally turning northward along the boundary of Kluane National Park and following the mountains into Alaska. This guide is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
