The Yukon’s all-mountain classic: starting in the alpine near the historic Mountain Hero mine and stone house, the trail follows the path of a 1905 mule trail built to haul construction materials for the Mountain Hero tramway.
There is only one trail in all of Canada in the International Mountain Bike Association’s “Epic Rides” Hall of Fame. That trail – Mountain Hero – is on Montana Mountain.
Mandatory Direction of Travel for Bikes: One-way.
Keep in mind that the route to Mountain Hero is a technically challenging mining road with steep climbs and loose, cobbly sections.
Montana Mountain is located just outside Carcross which is about an hour south of Whitehose. The trails can be accessed with a 4x4 vehicle or by riding up.
