The year 2017 marks the official start to construction on the Grey Mountain Trail. This project is anticipated to take at least five years to complete. Once completed, this multi-use trail will allow people to traverse the entire ridge of Grey Mountain, connecting to the existing trail network behind Riverdale. This trail has long been the dream of many residents and will strengthen Whitehorse’s reputation as a Wilderness City.
The green dotted line is what has so far been completed of the Grey Mountain Dream trail. It starts just before the Go-T trail meets with Mother-T.

Youth Achievement Center Partnership
2017 is the sixth year the Youth Achievement Centre has partnered with the City of Whitehorse, building multi-use and mountain biking trails in the community. Whitehorse has been recognized by Outside Magazine as being the number one mountain biking destination in the world. Many of the board walks and bridges on these trails have been constructed with the Youth Achievement Centre and highlight what our youth can achieve.
