Our hope was that we would make it to the Mackenzie Pass and see the beautiful landscape on the way. We headed out and the road was unbelievable....
Kind of confused about the bold part above, the road is somewhat maintained by the Yukon Government (IE the Moose Creek bridge and the Itsi Creek bridge were rebuilt in 2011) and it is pretty well travelled by quads etc. up to Godlin lakes. There is also a big Canol Road thread here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=729638

These guys made it the whole way to Norman Wells in August (but on the pedal bike variety): http://yukonfrolics.blogspot.ca/2012...age-trail.html
