About Spirit Canyon:

Locals have admired this small canyon just off the Alaska Highway for years. On the edge of the Sifton range, the Ibex Valley and with Mt. Ingram dominating the southern view, this rich area overlooking an old burn is host to elk, eagles, harriers and peregrine falcons just to name a few. There is a long native history associated with this canyon, so treat it accordingly. Please do not interfere with the wildlife or nesting areas of the eagles and falcons, they will not survive with too much human interference.
Nearest town or city: Whitehorse
Directions: Take the Alaska Highway #1 out of Whitehorse towards Haines Junction. From where the Klondike Highway #2 meets Alaska Highway #1, continue exactly 41KM west on the Alaska Highway #1. You will see a wide gravel flat on your right with a 4x4 trail running into the bushes. Access is about 1KM past this road that leads into a house below the canyon. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS PRIVATE ROADWAY!
