For those determined to find new and challenging experiences, this vast area will provide it. The pioneer spirit that opened the area is still somewhat required when making a northern journey along the Alaska Highway. Rivers, lakes and forests.

Dawson Creek, at the junction of Hwys 2, 49 and 97 became known as the "Mile Zero City" when construction of the Alaska Highway 97 began in 1943. It is considered the gateway to the vast wilderness above it, and maintains an almost mythical status. St. John, 80 kilometers north of Dawson Creek, is the last stop before heading on the trek to B.C.'s most northern border.
