Excellent starting point for your expeditions
The Town of Faro is an excellent starting point for your expeditions. Visiting Faro, you will have a choice of hiking trails rated from short distance to multi-day hikes on beautiful pathways trough the wilderness. Trail brochures are available at the Interpretive Centre.
The Campbell Region boasts a large network of trails leading through some of the most spectacular scenes in North America. Both seasoned hikers and recreational hikers will enjoy the variety of trails they will find here. And we promise that you won’t find crowds on your way.
Driving along the Campbell Highway you will find trails leading into the back country. These trails are not marked. We recommend caution when hiking these trails for people not familiar with back country hiking. The true adventurer, used to conquering less traveled paths, may want to come prepared with a GPS device. Remember that Yukon Territory for the biggest part is sheer nature and is undeveloped. Services outside the communities are rare and mostly non-existent. Safety can not be taken for granted!
Dena Cho Trail
The Dena Cho Trail is a 67.6 km multi-use recreation trail connection Faro and Ross River. The route of the trail is just gorgeous. The views are magnificent and there is a good variety of walking high above the river, through the forest and through more open space.
Although still in development, a temporary brochure with map was created to meet growing demand. Click the link below for your copy or pick one up at the Campbell Region Interpretive Centre!
