The Mackenzie Heritage Trail


Location:  British Columbia

Distance:   220 km

Duration:   1 week

Rating:  Class 6+


The Mackenzie Heritage Trail is a 425 km long travel of which 220 km is legal to drive in a motorized vehicle.  Make no mistake this is a serious expedition route as the trail is very difficult.  Mud, water crossing, very remote, notorious for fallen trees, etc all combine to make it rarely traveled.  Most folks seem to take 1 week to traverse the 220 km.

This trail is on our radar for a future expedition so our first hand knowledge is slim.  If you read this and have driven/ridden the trail we'd appreciate chatting with you...thanks in advance.
