a fairly well maintained route -- some gravel, some dirt lots of hardpack. stay away in the rain, and watch for bears. -- great scenery bring a camera, and remember in the yukon summer days last about 20 - 22 hours and it really doesn't get dark until August.

Summary:
the ride out took about 10 hours, and to get home about 5 hours. there are some great descents (i wish i had better brakes) with 90s and bush/trees at the bottom (beware)and a couple of long uphills. Technical sections are few, but very fast. overall it's amazing. nothing will ever beat the 2 am sunset. it definitely is the ride of a lifetime. bring lots of water, when the sun comes out it gets really hot fast. oh yeah be one the lookout i rode halfway home with bent rims.

Recommended Route:
grab a map at the trailhead (the top of King Soloman's Dome) and go from there

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Midnight dome rode -- over 2000 ft vertical in less than 5 km. (for you americans that just over 2 miles)
